Wickedsix04 - Randomly Banned Account
KreeceD - Keeps crashing when you activate tinder gold.
Don’t use this app. It’s all std sluts. Tinder gold crashes LITERALLY EVERY TIME I REACTIVATE IT! But the trash normal tinder works fine. Give me my money back you crooks.
Finally downloaded this app again after months and tinder gold actually works now however, the second I bought a gold account again somehow I get my account banned. I can’t install the app anymore at all. I’ve tried everything and I cannot make another account because I’m sure they use ip addresses now. I have been so nice to everyone and just being new people. Why did I get banned? I mean some girl said she was a model, I asked her who she was signed with, she said she took photos of herself. I said ok so your not an actual model, and I assume she reported me and now I’m banned. That’s the literally only kinda mean thing I have said to anyone. So I don’t know what happened. Tinder you guys are morons. How much money do you idiots lose a year from banning your customers? Seriously maybe try I one week ban? Rather than deleting the paying customers accounts. How ignorant can a company get! Lol! Owell I have been more lucky with Facebook dating anyways. Tinder, all the gorgeous women are robots or they are sex workers, or they send a link trying to get you to click it. So I’m good I’ll stick with Facebook.
Bye Tinder. Trash app.
Dhrdhyijh - I have a very serious complaint.
After years of having a tinder account and speaking only positive things of it, I have been banned wrongfully. I know exactly what got me banned. My account name was Boom. I had in my bio, "Who needs pickup lines? Try and roast me instead. Just know that I'll roast back." Now, the word "roast" in this context, by definition, means, "subject to GOOD-NATURED ridicule." Now I matched with a woman who went by the name of Echo. Echo tried to roast me by asking if I was either a "men's rights activist" or "really into anime." I proceeded to ask if that was a roast, to which she assured me it was. SHE THEN ASKED ME TO ROAST HER BACK. I then said she looked like Roz from Monsters Inc, which again, is a GOOD-NATURED roast. If I thought she was a young lady that didn't appeal to me, then I wouldn't have swiped right in the first place. Obviously, this means that it was a light-hearted, good-natured comment, but one that Echo took as an insult to her very being. She then proceeded to talk about how she was comparing me to "Nazis" and a "porn freak." Those comments sound a lot harsher than me comparing her to a fictional character. Why I was the one being banned for this is beyond me, but in this situation, I feel like I have been wrongfully banned, when what I said wasn't nearly as bad as what she said. Please review the conversation again.
objective interviews - Waste of money. Hinge or Bumble is better.
I hope the developers read this. I pay for Tinder Gold ($30/month, I will be unsubscribing soon). This is most expensive “paid” version of this app. I regularly “match” with paid advertisements who look like young single women. These are Paid advertisements facilitated / sold by Tinder. Should a paying “gold” user be getting hit with adds? No. Additionally, I regularly match/see women who are all 80-99 miles away. I have my radius set to 40 miles. I’m not interested in matching with someone who lives two states and a three hour drive away. Also, about 10-20% of the female profiles on Finder are fake/scammers who immediately want you to add some obscure social media account name that doesn’t match their Tinder name or picture. The app also crashes frequently (yes, it’s fully updated). If you’re looking to spend money on a dating app, you’d be better off spending money on Hinge or Bumble. Use the free version if Tinder if you like, but they don’t deserve your money. Also, I have heard from other people who are seemingly arbitrarily banned without any way to challenge or contest the ban. I guess that you can’t be accused of having terrible customer service if you don’t have any customer service to begin with...
Shelovesjess - Tinder needs an appeals process ASAP-Banned for no reason
I have been using tinder for years with no problem , and in the last week i decided to delete my account and make a new one so it could be refreshed. I feel like i was not getting as many likes or matches are i could. So i did that. I create my profile and everything is fine, then i go to sleep and wake up this morning to my account being banned for no reason. I didn’t do anything vulgar or post and bad pictures. My bio was not bad. And simply stated that I’m from London. I didn’t do anything to anyone. Had no conversations on this new account and It had been less than one day. If i can’t get my account back, I’ll have to leave a negative review unfortunately because I’ve seen countless other examples of people who have done nothing getting banned for no reason. And the fact that you come down so hard over nothing, and don’t provide an appeals process, is deplorable. Hopefully I will be able to get my account back as this app is something i enjoy Using to meet new people and there are not really any alternatives to it that i like. This review doesn’t take into account the sometimes shoddy algorithm when using the app, but that’s neither here nor there. FIX UP TINDER
Se@n331 - Glitched for two days, then banned out of nowhere.
I’ve had Tinder Gold for a couple of years now. I took myself out of the stack about a month ago, and came back over the weekend. It resumed without a hitch until Tuesday. I found that my matches and messages were fluctuating, and that it stopped showing profiles in areas either at home or where I work. I just assumed the servers were slow/lagging. I got home from work tonight, and I started to see profiles again. I thought things were back up and running again. I hop on about an hour later and bam, I’m banned. From what I’ve read on my app and trying to log in on the computer, I’ve all of a sudden violated their terms of service somehow. It’s not like I can get a hold of anyone, as their emails are electronically responded to by bots, and after reading through some of these reviews, their App Store responses are the same. I’ve canceled my subscription which was coming up for renewal at the end of the month, so I suppose timing couldn’t have been better for me. Between this, the increasingly fake(snap, insta follows, sugar babies, cashapp/Venmo requesting) profiles, and the clear dead end when it comes bans and customer service/support, it’s been eye opening for sure. Best of luck everyone.
dbrii6482 - By far the worst / trashiest app with worse customer service than Walmart
I've been paying for Tinder Gold for months now, and have always battled between wanting to delete the app or keeping it in "hopes" I'd meet someone with some substance. Is it easy to pull someone from it? For sure.
However you're much more likely to match with scammers (that have tried to blackmail me for $5k) or fake accounts "promoting" their Snapchat premium accounts. Upon attempting to report these accounts, they stay up, and even attempting to notify tinder about them they never seem to care (typical).
Now I've been banned from tinder (with my subscription just now charging me) for no reason, whereas I unfortunately had to stand up a girl at 10pm somewhere because I couldn't contact her. The app froze on my phone, so in order to get in touch with this young lady, I attempted to log into my account from my friend's phone. Upon doing the text verification , it logged me out then when my app unfroze, said I was banned. I attempted to write tinder about it, but only received an automated "screw you" type email. Absolutely pathetic. Especially when they advertise to "be more than a dating app." They made it very easy to make the decision to delete the trashy app.
Doomsday10tac2 - Scam alert / Age discrimination @ 30. Really?
Tinder’s pricing is determined by age. After 30 (my 30th birthday was a week ago) the prices jump substantially. All this made me do was cancel my subscription and elect to never purchase an item from them again. Sooo, your marketing team with online degrees from University of Phoenix might want to broaden their data collection.
Adding: tinder throws out this offer to upgrade to tinder plus for approx $34 a month. THEN, they offer to upgrade to tinder gold for an extra $3 a month. However, once you click on the upgrade button if changes to nearly $9/ month for 6 months. Definitely seems like false advertising and am attempting to scam people that don’t pay close attention to these sort of transactions. Shady as ever. Also, why are bots still a problem on here? I report at least a dozen bots a day...
Also, I was banned for saying “no liberals” in my account. Likely by some liberal troll that works at Tinder. However, what Tinder doesn’t know is I have the time and plenty of disposable income to buy a new phone, change my number, get a new card, change my Apple ID, create a fake email address, pay someone to ensure my router and IP address aren’t traceable. Lol, sorry Tinder, not smart enough for me 😂
jacks1821 - Banned for no reason
I’d hope the developer sees this. This app is fairly good. I can’t exactly complain other than the fact that I use to match with girls 100+ miles away from when my search radius is around 40 miles. I’m sorry but I don’t care to match with a girl that is 2 states away and sometimes in another country lol. I want to also add that i find it fairly ridiculous that I was banned for no reason I can think of nor did THEY give me a reason... On top of that, they have no way to appeal it. I’ve been on the website over the months and it says that, and I quote, “at the moment, we don’t offer a formal appeal process”. I could be wrong, surely I’m not, but this has been in development for a long time. I’d love to know when this is a thing. It makes me think that the developers don’t care enough about their users to want to even make something for appeals. Your customers must care enough about this app to want to try and appeal their ban. I’d love to know why I got banned in the first place anyways but they won’t tell me. I wouldn’t recommend this app to anyone. It’s ridiculous... the developers don’t care, they make you pay a rather ridiculous amount of money to even match with people.
$uperman708 - Matches are rigged
First night on the app I quickly got two attractive matches to my surprise. I begin to have a great conversation with one of them, but for seemingly no reason and completely out of nowhere, the match and conversation disappeared, along with the second match which I had not even messaged yet. Neither of them could be found anywhere, and I have no idea why this happened. I know for a fact that I never said anything even vaguely inappropriate or offensive, so there was no reason for the one match to un-match with me. Ever since then I have not had more than two matches show up in the tab, despite buying plus, despite boosting, despite receiving notifications about new matches, and despite even trying to swipe right on everyone. Radio silence as far as I can tell. Tinder is at least kind enough to tell me that I have more likes I can view and match with if I buy Gold for $29/mo. No thanks. This app is rigged and will only give us crumbs compared to what we’re actually worth just so they can make more money off of our search for connection. I’ll be deleting after this pay period unless Tinder can show us that they’re really trying to be transparent in our dating interests.
Señor Sherzai - Not real
I’ve been using it for a while but I noticed that you will have a rush of likes in 1 or 2 weeks. But after that everything gets slow down. Even if you had tinder gold plus but it’s still the same. Most of the time it’s like someone liked me on the tinder like 3 to 4 people in a day but when I opened the app and there is no likes. What I’m thinking that they might like me or swiped me right but you guys are trying to take it off from me. Like giving me false hope and there is no likes. Who knows? Because maybe you want me to continuously use your plus membership monthly. No, but people should know if this is what you’re doing to them. And what is happening with me also happening to them, means I’m not wrong. Also I swiped everyone for 2 weeks like literally everyone. Yet not like back. At least one. Only one could like me back. But no one did. It doesn’t mean I may not look someone according to their interest. It also can mean that you took my every likes from them that they don’t know if I liked them or no. If this is how a business runs to take out the likes and make people keep using continuously the membership, then it’s the foulest thing that I ever seen.
D.L.W.E - Probably not worth it.
I’ve used this app a little...but once I felt brave enough to put myself out there, I uploaded all decent pictures that contained no lewdness at all and filled out basically everything I could think of on the profile (contained no vulgarity either). Experience was going okay for just a little bit, but as soon as I begin seeing I apparently had some likes on my profile one day then I’m locked out of the app/my profile and told I’ve been banned. No explanation or anything from the support team or anything like an email, nothing. I’ve asked many times to have my account reviewed so they can see nothing was wrong with my profile or the messages but they just kept stating that “you’ve been banned for violating our terms”. So, here I am still single and unable to use what I thought was a good app because Tinder felt I violated the app by casually using the app like most people would? Like I said, my profile contained no vulgar images or words or anything like that nor did the few rare messages I got to send. So I’m confused and upset with my experience. If you’re thinking about spending money on the app, reconsider as they might just ban you for no reason as well.
kennanjlukacs - Tinder Needs to Up Their Game
I made a Tinder account back in 2018 when I was legally old enough to do so to try it out. All my friends were doing it, and I thought why not. Fast forward probably three or four weeks, after I’ve experienced several issues staying logged in to my account. I open the app, and it tells me I’ve been banned. There is no reasoning given to me for why, just the general explanation that I may have violated terms of service or community guidelines. I didn’t. The ban was random.
Since then, I’ve emailed a few times over the last two years just to try and clear up the issue. As of December 2020, however, there is still no appeals process, and after getting an email that your request will be reviewed, almost immediately you get another generic response from the “Support” team that there isn’t an appeals process and that your request is resolved. That isn’t customer service at all, that’s just telling for the company that they have no interest in helping resolve cases of accidental bans (because I am not the first nor the last to have this happen to them) and communicate with the customer in general. Very disappointed that this continues to happen.
Rick7898 - Banned out of nowhere for no reason, customer support won’t even say why
After using tinder for about 6 years, opened the app a few days ago only to find I’d been banned with zero warnings or any indications of wrongdoing. I always acted respectfully with everyone and didn’t have anything that could possibly be considered controversial on my profile apart from some very tame shirtless pictures and a few anime related memes.
My advice, the app is fine but don’t spend a single cent on it, in case this happens to you. Banned suddenly without even a single warning, and no one will even tell you why or hear what you have to say. I lost all my matches and connections and years of effort, and they don’t even have the decency to tell me why or give me a single warning about any “wrongdoing”.
MrFrostingbutt - More like, Bug Night
I’ve seen some other reviews mentioning the fact they completely broke their app with this update so I’ll just move on to the review of Swipe Night. It’s worse than any B-movie i’ve ever seen. I never thought you could make a story where the protagonist is background extras. First of all, cell phones don’t have static because they’re not analog TVs, so the glitching effect makes no sense. All the ambulances you see are from the 1970s because that’s all they had access to I guess. The sets are tiny and empty, I guess because the portrait aspect ratio doesn’t allow you to see much of the environment, so maybe that’s actually good filmmaking then. Obviously the acting is terrible and they try way to hard to make people sound “hip” and cool. Maybe they based the dialog on all y’all’s chat logs and some of you really talk like that. It’s really ironic that the app won’t let me click anything but the Swipe Night video plays fine. I was so bored I sat through a decent chunk of it until the bugs came back and I couldn’t swipe to make a choice anymore. Oh also I HIGHLY doubt that view counter is real. there’s no way over a million people could pay attention to that Z-movie.
Gale22 - Highly toxic and depressing
Too many people using this out of boredom and too many douche bags. Please don’t waste your time on this app. No one uses this seriously. It’s just a matching game for most.
Also, if you’re a person of color especially a black person just know it takes just a few swipes from someone racist for you to be lowered in your desirability meaning. If you live in an area where people are swiping left for your skin color your profile is less likely to show up for someone on the same level of attractiveness as you. This isn’t just tinder but all dating apps across the board. I’m an above average attractive black woman and in person I have no problem attracting guys pre covid but on here I rarely get any guys I would ever find attractive. Their algorithm controls who you get to see and how attractive you are, theirs so many things wrong with that system and I’m honestly disgusted by all these dating apps.
They don’t care if you find love they just care about keeping you on as long as possible. Oh and the CEO once bragged that they had an above average desirability according to their algorithms. Everyone should do research on how dating algorithms work, stop wasting your money.
Elijah219 - Shadow bans
Tinder used to be amazing. When I first started using tinder, I’d wake up to dozens of matches a day. In my first week I’d have easily over a hundred matches and countless conversations with some pretty cool people. I made lots of new connections whether online or in person. But idk what’s happened over the last year or so. After the last couple times I’ve downloaded, I get almost no matches. It will say I have 100+ people who swiped on me but will literally get no more than 2-3 matches a week. My messages don’t go through, and matches randomly disappear during a good conversation. It’s extremely frustrating and the app is definitely playing people. Even the secret admirer function tells me to pick one of 4 cards that swiped on me... but when I pick one it says better luck next time. Every single time... there’s so many better apps out there that don’t do this. One starts with a B and another with an H. I’d highly suggest trying those out and deleting this useless app. This review would get one star except for the fact that tinder used to be good and I would’ve gave it 4-5 stars a couple years ago.
Autumn Kim - Terrible treatment
Over quarantine I was casually swiping through tinder and matching with people to talk to and possibly go out with as soon as restrictions eased up. To my surprise one day I tried to log in and got told I was banned. I never posted any photos or anything in my bio that went against the guidelines. I also tried to keep my conversations with others on there clean and avoided any words that weren’t appropriate. I did update my bio the day before to say that if people didn’t support BLM to swipe left (since there unfortunately a lot of men I met on there that didn’t). I was given no warnings. I have no idea why I was banned and when I messaged the help center to ask why I was, their response was that they didn’t accept appeals and wouldn’t unban me. When I pressed further to ask why I had been, they wouldn’t even respond to me. Terrible customer service.
At this point I have to assume I got banned for expressing my political views on there. Though I keep reading a bunch of other reviews of people who have had a similar experience to me. Yet Tinder still doesn’t have an appeals process for these instances? Tinder needs to do better. People should not be treated this way.
Fizzykhalifa - Bans for no reason
I’ve been using Tinder since it first came out and I thorough enjoyed the app! I actually met some really cool people which I still talk to.
Now... this app is useless. I understand that people can be predatory but the practices that Tinder is doing is awful. They are banning people for no reason. In my case I got banned for nothing because the worst message I sent was “hey cutie”. My roommate got banned even though he didn’t message ANYONE. When I went online I saw that this problem was prolific and everywhere. They ban people for absolutely no reason and without any proof. If they receive one report, you’re done. So theoretically, a guy, who doesn’t have a good chance with the ladies, can lower the dating pool by making a fake account and reporting any dude they find to be more attractive than them. And when you try to email tinder about the situation, you get an automated reply and ZERO help at all. The email they sent me said “we do not check for what you did and we do not unban or review accounts.” This type of practice from Tinder is illogical and sexist. And it will eventually lead to the demise of this app. I cannot wait to see this app be removed from the App Store.
ChrisVojkovich - SO MANY FAKE PROFILES
I’ve been a user for a couple years now, and originally I would have meaningful conversation with multiple matches per week. After some taking time off from the app and finally coming back to it, more than 75% of the profiles I swipe on all have a bio that reads something to the tune of “Wanna see more? Ask for my private Snapchat.”Needless to say if you are unlucky enough to match with one of these people they instantly send you a contact card, unprompted. Currently where I live the amount of 24 year old women named “Kimberly” is astonishing. Clearly some scammer is creating fake profiles and trolling the site to get people to join another site and steal their info. The creators and developers of this application definitely do not have profiles and do not actively use the app. If you are in the market to get scammed, or match up with a chat bot, then this is the perfect app for you. If you are an actual human being looking to match with another actual human being, then definitely do not download this app!! It really is the worst parts of the internet condenses into one location. HUGE WASTE OF TIME AND THANK GOD I NEVER WASTED MONEY FOR THIS TRASH BAG APP MASQUERADING AS A DATING SITE.
newtinderuser - They don’t help
I got tinder and was talking to some guys I matched up with when suddenly I got banned, it didn’t even tell me I was banned it just stated that I need to verify my age with my ID which I tried to do, but it wouldn’t even load. I then tried contacting customer service and even sent them a photo of my ID to verify my age, and all I got in response was some crud about how I cannot make an appeal to unban my account, which I didn’t even know was banned at that point. Then when I tried to respond to the email they told me I could not contact them through it so I would have to restart my process all over again, Long story short don’t get tinder and also don’t subscribe to any premium or gold either as I’ve seen in a lot of other comments. I also got tinder gold and used it for about 2 hours before my account was banned so I just lost 15 dollars for no reason essentially. Unless they actually fix my account I will not use tinder and will make sure none of my friends or family ever use it either. This was very disappointing and upsetting, I was very excited to try tinder for the first time and it turns out to be a horrendously managed app.
DanFingerMan - Trouble Unsubscribing
Why is it near impossible to unsubscribe? I logged into Tinder on the their website, clicked on settings and clicked “Manage Payment Account”.
Then it shows a message saying I subscribed on the native app and that I should unsubscribe from there. No problem. I get on the app and go to my settings and guess what? THERE IS NO “Manage Payment Account” in the settings tab! So I try unsubscribing via Apple ID (iTunes), even though I paid directly with CC. Nothing was found under subscriptions either. Okay. I try to look for a link to customer support and there is literally no way to contact support unless you call them. Are you serious? Make it easier to unsubscribe for the sake of everything fair! I’m still stuck trying to figure out how the hell to unsubscribe before I get charged on my card again. It’s ridiculous how the developers remove the payment option on the app.
In all fairness, the app is decent and you can find people to meet if you really put the effort into it. Just be careful when subscribing.
adam_and - There’s always been bugs
Tinder’s goal is to help you meet people, and it does that well, but getting there can be a struggle with all these bugs. The app constantly breaks when I swipe from a profile too the messages tab, things get hung up, even on a newer iPhone. Sometimes the app crashes. My biggest pet peeve is the fact that unless I turn on every form of notification for Tinder, I have a notice inside every conversation telling me to turn on notifications. I get a lot of notifications from Tinder, so I would like to have them sent to Notification Center without a banner, badge, or sound. The app constantly is reminding me to “turn notifications on!” even when they ARE on, just sent to the Notification Center. When I DO get notifications in my Notification Center, they never stack, so tinder notifications take up my whole screen. SOOO annoying. I like this app and I know it can be better, that’s why I’m being critical. Great work, but I hate the fact that my favorite dating app can be so frustrating.
Joshua Helm - It’s alright
Given the benefit of the doubt the app does seemingly have a lot of issues but overall it’s not the WORST experience possible. I think one of the biggest issues is the various prices for Tinder gold. Now they want to charge me $45/mo (I’m 19) whereas they want to charge my friend (keep in mind who is also 19) $15/mo. I’m not too sure what’s with the price discrepancy but I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s experienced this. $15 seems reasonable but $45 a month? Definitely won’t be happening. As for the user base, you find a LOT of bots but thats to be expected you can find a numerous amount of bots on seemingly any “dating app” that’s just how it is. So I won’t mark off too many points for that but another issue is the lack of finding people who like you. I could swipe right on everyone like a mad man (which I don’t WANT TO DO) and still not find a single person who liked me (which it’s not like I have 0 likes I have a good bit) I know this is probably a ploy for me to get the tinder gold but then we go back to the $45/mo issue.
none Ya17 - Banned when they didn’t help me appropriately
When I contacted tinder intially in regards to being unable to access my account due to me getting a new phone number. Everytime I went through the reset steps it returned back to me having to access my phone number I previously had. Remind you this has happened before where I had my number changed and they were able to resolve my problem before. This time after telling me to use the other step instead of verifying through my number which I did. Which failed because it still circulated me back to the step of verifying through my old number. Tinder support then send me a email that I’m banned! This is upsetting after tinder support failed me twice in assisting me with this matter. This is legit reason they can be sued for. In regards to being banned and then violating their own terms and agreement. After giving me the wrong solution to my initial problem. All that was mention was that I violated terms and agreement. I read it all and I have not violated anything after using tinder in and out over the years.
chickwithattitude - Worst company ever go to hinge
This company allows people to ban you for no reason. I was banned within one hour of opening my profile to women. When I had the same profile for 2 months prior with just men. No nudity no harassment and when I asked for an investigation they told me though they say the offer investigations they won’t be doing them. They allow men to put down they just want their privates sucked. They allow people to put down they are drug dealers. But I got banned for no reason and they won’t even tell me why they just keep saying I violated the rules but not what rule or anything cause they do it without evidence. Plus they keep the page up I am still getting guys hitting me up asking to take me to the beach. Please remove the profiles you block I don’t need men hitting me up cause my ig was attached still. Why say you investigate when your lazy company refused to. To bad I couldn’t give ZERO stars cause what you did was a violation of my rights as I did nothing wrong. Wow what a disgusting place we live in that we are quarantined yet places you can go to find people to chat with ban and you but leave your profile in limbo
PunkFiction666 - Terrible service
Tinder does not have a way to appeal the decision that they make to terminate accounts, and will not offer any explanation as to why they have done so aside from saying “sorry, you can’t come back”. It is obviously a big enough issue that they have a section to contact customer service about it, so I find it ridiculous that they don’t have any way to have someone review it. Get better algorithms or offer a way to appeal. Terrible app, horrible customer service.
Trey Can’t Skate - Scam, Needs to be Removed from Store & Editors Choice
Complete scam. I’ve been using the app on and off for 3 years and have. not. once. matched with a real person. It tells you you have multiple likes just to get you to spend money on gold, because it will never actually show you these accounts. I paid for gold for about 2 months last year and it was revealed that every account that had liked me was a bot account 1000+ miles away, and then I never got anymore likes after paying for the subscription. Used boosts, changed discovery settings, uploaded different pictures, changed bio, nothing. On top of that, it then banned me for no reason and customer service is non existent.
I recently decided to give the app another try, a friend let me use their phone number to sign up, and it is the same exact thing. For 5-6 days it has been telling me I have 18 likes but no amount of swiping has given me a match or decreased the number of likes. It also starts to freeze and crashes if you swipe left more than 5 times in a row. Tinder only exists to get your hopes up and steal your money. Garbage, scam app.
Channon.V - Banned for no reason
Apparently this app likes to Ban people after they subscribe to Tinder Plus. I read the community guidelines and there was Never a moment that I could say I violated the guidelines. They literally said one of my pictures was reported but idk why, as it’s a picture of me standing outside of a restaurant fully clothed! How the hell does a picture of someone wearing a peacoat get banned?! They never explained their reason for banning me. I sent them an email to provide me detail information as to why I was banned. Never cussed at anyone while replying to messages. Wasn’t even soliciting anything or requesting people to cash app me as I’ve heard some people do & idk why those accounts don’t get banned! I was legit just trying to look for someone I could connect with or befriend. If I got banned because I was changing my location well that is stupid because they literally added Global to the app. They need to manage this app better because if you google I got banned from tinder you can see how many people are having this issue. To the tinder community I will only change my review if y’all unban me.
Shanehill76 - From dating app to scam
Tinder was once a good go to dating app. Not anymore. I began to notice that people messaging me were being banned. A few I had met so I asked them what happened. They had no idea. I thought it was strange. Then one day, I was banned from the app. I contacted them to ask why this had happened. I got the message that other reviewers have received. Basically saying I didn’t follow terms of service. Replying to messages seems to be perfectly fine on terms of service so that was not true. I asked them what specific reason was I banned since I was a paying member and had no idea why. I received no response. They banned me one day after charging me for the monthly service plan.
Don’t fall for it. NEVER pay for Tinder. Second, they keep trying to charge you after they ban you. I ended my subscription and they still tried. I contacted apple and had Tinder blocked from charging me anymore.
Once a good app. Now they are a scam. They will not reply to your messages for support. They do not care. There are some other dating apps that are sooooooooo much better. Get away from this one.
Yo Mamma Momma - Tinder Lies and Steals
I have been a tinder gold member for a while now and at first it all seemed legit. I was getting more likes and it was also nice to see who liked you already. The problem is, they don’t tell you everyone who has swiped right on you. I have a friend that saw me and swiped right on me and it didn’t not show up. This issue causes a slippery slope. This can possibly mean that a lot of people are missing out on potential matches because tinder feels as though it’s ok to lie and steal from their customers. Honestly it’s false advertising because they don’t 100% fulfill the perks that come with buying tinder gold (which is an outrageous price In the first place). I will no longer be paying for tinder and you should consider this review before making the same mistake. Also, some people don’t receive your messages even when they say delivered so keep ya heads up fellas your pick up line wasn’t that bad, tinder just decides whether or not you are worthy or not. Also I could mention the millions of fake profiles and shadow banning but this simple review would turn into an essay. “Happy Swiping”
Fellow FANzalea - Banned for NO REASON AT ALL; Disappointed and outraged
I was using tinder regularly and had nothing explicit in my bio or in any of my pictures. Out of nowhere one day it said my account had been banned when I tried to access the app. I thought hmm, what could I have possibly done and after doing some digging on the internet, I saw that a lot of people had the same exact problem and I am disappointed in tinder for not having any sort of appeals process. I have tried talking further to them but received nothing but automated emails that said I violated “terms of service and/or community guidelines” in many different phrases. I received an email from Martina that said “Unfortunately we cannot provide anymore detailed information at this time” and once again told me to refer to the community guidelines. Really REALLY disappointed in tinder for this shadowban and also can’t believe they couldn’t give me a specific reason as to why my account was banned. Clearly if I were banned there would be a reason to initiate a ban and right now there still hasn’t been anymore information provided to me.
TheGreaser - Waste of time
First month I had the app I got lots of likes and a few decent matches. I even managed a date with someone from the app, they where a lot bigger then they lead to believe but that’s not a fault with the app. As time went on matches and likes started to drop off dramatically. I did some digging online and found a few articles stating: if you don’t buy premium they push your profile further back in the queue. Essentially without paying less people see your profile and you’ll end up less likely matching with people you liked. I’m not gonna pay 15 bucks a month just to get my profile visibility up. Follow that with half of the accounts being fake to gain followers on things like Instagram, Snapchat, and onlyfans. There a ton of fake accounts so much so that it’s extremely disappointing after getting so little likes and matches the few you get end up being fake accounts from India with terrible English and plugging for social media followers or personal information.
If your looking for love or any real connection with anyone this is not the app you want.
r.lockstone - Tinder only wants your money
I installed Tinder about two weeks ago, early October, 2020. After two weeks, I have concluded that it is horrendously bad. I estimate that around 70-80% of the female profiles are fake, spam, scams, bots, fronts for escorts/prostitutes, foreign scammers (mostly Asian and Russian), or actual women trying to get people to follow them on SC, IG, or their OnlyFans accounts. It’s not worth the time/effort to find someone who might be real and actually looking to date. I don’t know what it’s like for the women, but this is the experience for men.
I am a software architect and programmer. I can think of multiple ways that Tinder and other dating apps could weed out the vast majority of the fake accounts. And I’m sure Tinder knows how to do those things as well. I’m guessing they don’t because they’ve realized that the existence of those fake accounts make Tinder more money. They’re not interested in actually helping people find relationships, they only care about making as much money as they can as fast as they can.
Tinder isn’t a dating app. It’s not even a hookup app. It’s a way for Tinder make money. Period.
557ve - Banned For No Reason
You would think a corporation as large as Tinder would have their stuff together. But quite the opposite. Tinder focuses on methods like tinder gold jut as a cash grab. And with millions of users, Tinder is by far the most popular dating app, and they use it to their advantage.
Address the unnecessary banning. I had been us in tinder for over five years till, for no reason, I was banned for nothing. Still, you can read all the 1-star reviews about the bans. It's ridiculous. You would assume tinder would do something to fix it or even address some people, but they don't, and that is the most annoying thing. I travel a lot and have met some fantastic people on Tinder, and for them to ban me well, it's annoying cause you can't even appeal your case.
Here my two cents for your tinder. If it were just one person posting about the ban on the issue, I would understand. But the fact that many users are getting banned should be a concern of yours. I know you won't address me, but I will continuously rate you 1-star for your terrible customer service and lack of explaining.
Idk last name - Fun but Flawed
I’ve been on and off Tinder for years when I’ve found myself that bored. I’ve met many cool people from the app but I’ve also met my fair share of crazy people from the app. I found that the more people I matched with (and didn’t communicate with) the more likely my account was to be banned. That happened three times, but this last time I actually deactivated my account because I met someone. When that didn’t work out, I returned to the app only to be met with an explanation that my account had been banned citing that I had violated Tinder’s Terms and Conditions. How could it have been banned when it hadn’t even been active? I pointed this out to Tinder support but received an email that they don’t have an appeals process, which is unfortunate. I’m inclined to believe that they don’t actually review reports on accounts to see if they’ve actually violated Terms and Conditions but they instead just go ahead and ban accounts. The integrity of this app is greatly compromised. I would not recommend Tinder to friends.
@lebreezzyy - Scam. Waste of time and Money.
***REAL REVIEW FROM SOMEONE WHO ACTUALLY USES THE APP DAILY****
I wish I could give it zero stars. Tinder is by far the worst. I don’t think that anyone that works at Tinder actually uses Tinder. How it became so mainstream is beyond me. I have reached out on multiple occasions about reporting fake profiles with the response basically being sorry. You report one profile and 10 more pop up in its place or you see the same profile a few hours later. Some are blatantly fake with pics of porn stars and bios with misspelled words and bot created Snapchat names. Some even go as far as just putting a cashapp in the bio. If that doesn’t scream fake/scammers idk what does. Tinder has become a hub for scammers. For every real profile there are 100 fake ones. Whatever the verification process is obviously doesn’t work. I have many ideas on how to improve it but I think I’m going to just design my own app to compete with the nonsense that is a tinder. Tbh save you time honestly. The time you spend on tinder combing through fake profiles you could be out actually meeting a real person.
003928174 - Yet another... ban for no reason
It’s clear that tinder doesn’t care about their users, or make an attempt to provide a worthwhile service. We could go down the list of tinder’s failures, but I’m addressing one thing in particular. I’ve been banned for quite literally no reason. Tried contacting them, no response or resolution. They won’t even tell me what I did(not do). Further more, this seems to be a surprisingly common issue. A lot of people are experiencing permanent bans for no reason, and tinder thinks this is okay? If I had to guess, I’d hypothesize that some disgruntled user decides to report you (for whatever reason, maybe they just don’t like your face, maybe an ex, who knows??) and tinder just automatically bans the person reported without investigating a lick. Let it be known, that I HAVE read the terms and guidelines and I have NOT violated a single one. As well, I have never said anything even remotely disrespectful or creepy; that runs counter to who I am as a person.
But yeah, just keep on banning your paying customers tinder... I’m sure that will work out for you in the long run. /s
Leo_Boy95 - App’s Getting Worse with each Update
Tinder as a concept is great. You log on, swipe to your heart’s content, and meet new people. No need for a bunch of features to add to your profile. It’s simple. Wonderful idea. At one point the app worked perfectly too, but as time’s gone on and more updates come out the UI/UX has gone down a lot. UI features go missing randomly, never to be seen again unless you reinstall. Videos won’t upload; sometimes they won’t even show up. When they do upload, it’s 50/50 on whether or not other’s can see them, as profiles glitch often. As time’s gone on, the app just gets more buggy. I think it could just be the way they’re updating the app, but the experience on Tinder just isn’t what it used to be. It’s a shame because I actually do still like the app, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t displeased/expecting better. Please look into the bugs. A lot of them have persisted thru a few updates
ajx3__ - Just plain AMAZING
It’s so ironic that dating apps could be so cliché when looking for love, but that’s exactly how it ended up with me. I married the person who I met through this dating app & he ended up being my everything, my rock, my best friend, a man that I could never live without. 5 years & 2 little boys later, we are so beyond happy & very much head over heels for each other still (Cheesy? Sorry, just wanted to share my experience of joy I had with this app.) Now, is it too good to be true that you could possibly meet your soulmate through dating apps? NOPE I don’t think so, as a matter of fact I truly believe that anyone could meet their Mr. or Ms. Right anywhere as long you are careful & know that your heart truly belongs to that right person. So this is by far the best dating apps I’ve experienced with so far, & I definitely highly recommend this. 💯
A14:) - Banned and I don’t know why
I was banned around a week ago. Long story short I received a Snapchat from someone I was talking to from the app. Politics came up and I told him my view. I did not say anything mean/ disrespectful or harass or call anyone names (nothing of the sort). He then tells me he reported my Snapchat and tinder after sending me a bunch of very rude Snapchat messages. Telling me I need education and Jesus and a bunch of other rude things. Then blocks me. Then I go on the app and I see a rude message from him, then he blocks me on there. I then close the app only to find 10 minutes after opening it again that I have been banned and I have no idea why. He obviously reported me and said I did something that I did not and I have no idea what I was reported for. It must have been something bad in order to be banned and I don’t appreciate it. I want my account back now as I was talking to some others that I was connecting with. Y’all need to investigate why a claim was made before you ban people! The ban was unjustified.
Pbarry94 - Absolutely unacceptable treatment of customers.
I was a Tinder Gold member for months, and made the mistake of spending the $8 a month it cost to be a tinder gold member. Until one day I randomly received a notice that my account had been banned. I went to tinder support and made a claim asking for an explanation. What I got in response was a cookie cutter, clearly pre-typed up response saying I had violated the community guidelines (which I looked through and clearly hadn’t). I wasn’t given a single hint as to what guideline or policy I had violated, what I had done to violate that policy, and was told in the statement that there is no appeals process, and they banned my phone number from making another account. There is no support phone number for me to call, no manager for me to speak to, I’ve tried numerous times again to get an explanation and have been given nothing but the same response statement I received the first time. This is a reprehensible way to treat a paying customer and I would recommend everyone stay very far away from any service that thinks this is acceptable behavior.
Jayleigh96 - Shadowbanned Without Good Reason
So I’ve been using tinder since 2015, literally over five years. I’ve paid for tinder plus, as well tinder gold throughout this time. Recently, I decided I wanted to reset my matches because I had too many to keep track of. Apparently tinder will shadowban you for re-making your account, which is not stated ANYWHERE in the terms of service that it’s against the rules. I’ve been an excellent customer for so many years, and this is how I’m re-paid. I’m extremely disappointed with this as there are actual bots and people that are causing issues on the platform and yet I break a “hidden rule” and can no longer make an account. I even tried using a different phone with a different number and apparently I’m just banned for life. Super disappointing, I’ll never recommend tinder to anyone ever again.
vermont02 - Hiding people who liked me
I’ve been using tinder since March and I’ve gotten a lot of matches. When I moved to college, one there girls outnumber guys 3:1 I thought I’d have a lot of options. Since I got here the amount of matches I got have gone down significantly. I keep seeing bots named Kimberly who are 2 miles away. The worst part about this is I have gold, which has been useful. However I have gotten 2 matches with people from my school, but the app never said I had any likes waiting. I got the matches after I swiped right meaning I was the second person to swipe. Furthermore, the app seems to be bottlenecking the amount of people showing up in my feed. 90% of them are bots named Kimberly and maybe once in a blue moon I get someone from my school, but so far I haven’t matched with a single person. I find it disposable that I pay for a membership that’s being abused to no end by this app. I filed a help request over email and they haven’t since emailed me back.
hannahhng - Banned for no reason, horrible customer service.
I was banned for no reason, recently created account, no explicit content or violating any rules. I just made an account after deactivating my old one a couple weeks ago. ****A tip for customers: if you are paying Tinder, you should cancel your subscription, because they will ban and deactivate your account for no reason with no notice!!*** Had a lot of matched and was starting to message people, but nothing was exchanged yet besides greetings and simple small talk. Customer service was useless and offered no appeal or reason why I was banned besides “violating community guidelines.” They sent me an automated reply. Will be telling all of my friends and spreading the word to not use this app, as it’s a waste of time when they ban you randomly and you lose all your matches and people you have been talking to. It is ridiculous that such a huge company cannot take the time out of their day to provide decent customer service. They really need to work on customer service instead of banning people for no reason.
Samuel1396 - App is a joke now. Don’t use
Tinder is a joke now. Company is a complete sell out. I’ve got nothing but bots the past two days with the exact same name ‘Kim’ or ‘Kimberly’, they always have a one picture, the exact same age, and are 2 miles away from me every single time. I literally just saw someone post exact same thing about getting bots with the name Kimberly so it’s clear that it’s not just my area and that Tinder is just adding bots so it makes it seem like the app is super active. Also super greedy adding all these different features to the app but make them super ineffective so you basically just waste your money. I would not recommend this app, I would either try a different one or go out into the world and meet people. If you really don’t wanna do that then only use the app for like 1 to 2 weeks, and never pay for anything because it’s not worth it at all! They are just ripping you off. Also I tried reporting them all and once I reported so many they stop letting me report the bots so they clearly don’t want me getting rid of them.
NotanotherDani - Disgustingly Transphobic
I was on tinder for about 4 months, and actually had a pretty good time and met a decent number of people. I am trans. Eventually, I randomly received the “tinder trans ban,” which is apparently a frequent occurrence wherein trans people get banned because transphobes report us for no reason and tinder automatically bans accounts with enough reports. I was upfront that I was trans—it was right in my profile, so I’m assuming I was literally reported by like 5 or 6 transphobes in my 4 months on tinder and they just went off and banned me for it. I also received multiple transphobic messages, like from a woman who literally displayed the LGBTQ+ Rights tinder interest badge and messaged me “wait, you’re a man, really?” (I am a trans woman, not a man). This was in NYC. Tinder is straight up transphobic, you need to pay people to actually monitor reports and stop banning trans people if you want to quit having such a transphobic reputation. You can’t just give a few different options to self identify gender and say you’re supportive when you constantly ban trans woman for being trans.
SlimReaper1223 - Got banned for no reason
I made my account and stuff and I haven’t use the app because I would under 18 and I turn 18 tomorrow on October 1 and I have nowhere I’m banned for no reason and I never use the app yet this is kind of ridiculous if you’re trying to do something like you can’t she’s banned someone for no reason at all even though they haven’t did anything I wish you guys could answer your emails and stuff like that because I’m really trying to get my account back even if I tried to make a never account and stuff I have to use my number and will not work I just wish this never happened like I did nothing wrong my cat shouldn’t be banned for no reason there was a countdown for me saying that we are good we’re glad to have me back it make no since to banned me before my birthday smh I email tinder so many time and they keep saying that there not going to unbanned my account you can’t just banned someone that has not use the app before this is so dumb like how the hell am I supposed to use an app that I never used yet smh
Mookielook - Garbage app, even for gold
This app was great for the first week or so. Then things went down hill, from 7-8 matches a day to zero actual human matches a week. The bots are rampant on this app. How hard can it be to only show verified accounts? It clearly must be out of their multi million dollar budget. As someone who paid for gold, I have seen no upside, boosts state that you become a top profile for 30 minutes, but I believe it boosts your profile one time in a 30 minute span. Pushing you further and further down the line as the time passes. I have had enough of the FAKE accounts. That is what drove me to make this review. If the creators/developers of this app even bothered to use it they could firsthand see how many robots there really are. So no I don’t think Kimberly a 24 year old person with a single photo on her account followed by 10 MORE KIMBERLYS ALSO 24 WITH ONE PHOTO. Are even remotely real. Adjust your distance from whatever it is to 10 miles and watch all the new robots appear. Say goodbye to a paying user. This App is garbage.
concubinerbt - What used to be great LITERALLY doesn’t work anymore
I’ve been using tinder for about 5 years now. It used to work great, function like any other basic dating/messaging app. However, for about two years now the apps most BASIC functions are constantly bugging and not working. There seems to be zero priority on making sure basic efficiency is met and maintained for the user experience. The support team literally doesn’t exist, if they do they’re hiding from people. 99% of the time you don’t get a response at all, and when you do, it’s an automated message with some unhelpful response to your query. This is getting to the point where you can’t even DELETE your own account anymore when it’s entire functionality ceases... how does that even work? Please, everyone, it’s best to avoid this app until the people over at tinder realize what a monstrosity of a piece of software they’ve allowed it to become and do some serious turn overs/start actually making a product that their users can work with.

R@z3r47 - Overall Satisfied
I am a regular user of Tinder. What I hate is the fact that for the amount of money I’m paying for membership, customer support staff don’t hesitate to take your money and then not reply.
I constantly get issues with this annoying “would you like to video chat with this person”. I keep pressing no and then it freezes my app. I constantly have to log in again each time it pops in, so I can barely use it. I constantly messaged the support staff 6 times the last two mo the and no reply. Don’t know if this is a joke, but for me to pay something that barely works is so unhelpful. I hope this goes to the app developer so the staff are trained into mitigating these errors.
KrustyKrabbie - The app is BROKEN
The app is completely dysfunctional. It crashes instantly every time I open it, so I need to then open it a second time, but then it inevitably lags, freezes and crashes. I have to use the desktop website if I actually want it to work. I have Gold but the “likes” interface is useless. What is the point in knowing I have thousands and thousands of likes but the only way to sort through them is to manually scroll through (on desktop, there is no chance of this working on the app). There NEED to be filtering options, such as oldest to newest, age specification, distance, recently active, interests, etc. In addition, when clicking on people who have liked you, it should automatically show you the next person, so you could swipe through them rather than having to click on every single individual profile. If I swipe left on someone who has shown up in my “people who liked you”, I do not want to be shown to them again. There have been people who I have swiped left on SIX TIMES, but they just keep liking me and clogging up my likes feed. The video chat pop up is also very annoying.
bbccjk bj - Next update
I just have a suggestion, I’m finding it hard to keep up with the boys I like better than others and who I would prefer to reply back to. If you could please make a feature for the next update so that I’m able to favorite people without them knowing that would be fab. Thanks
Jamiesonn - Discriminatory money hungry thieves
I’ve just discovered your system works on paying more depending on your preference, gender, age and location coming into a factor. Which is discrimination based on personal factors. You guys were good when you first rolled out everyone had a good time, despite banning me heaps of times for doing absolute nothing or saying goodnight to my matches ( I can see I’m not the only one) and then have the audacity of not providing a refund or respond to customer service. Now you guys are money grabbing thieves with Artifical intelligence (or low IQ customer service behind the screens) running the show and ruining the concept. I also noticed you ignored everyone upset at the unfair banning and pricing and don’t offer them a solution but reply to people who have “no matches”. People have been genuinely banned unfairly.
LisaJayne12 - Banned for No Reason
I have used this app on and off over the years and whilst it has never been the greatest, it seems to have a lot more people on it.
Just recently I was banned for no reason though and after trying to contact Tinder, I got a generic response and that they couldn’t help me.
I have done NOTHING wrong and I have NOT violated their user terms or anything like that, so I’m very confused why this happened.
I’ve heard other people have had the same issue, so is this a common thing now, Tinder? Banning people for the fun of it? Surely you can give us a reason as to why you’ve done this to our account? You want people to like you and your app, yet when it comes to something like this you literally just kick us out with no explanation... pathetic.
court-m - Got banned for no reason
I have been using tinder for a couple of years now. On and off.
I normally have my card hidden during the day while I’m at work, and at night when I’m home I’ll go on, make my card visible and have a few swipes here and there. My account apparently got banned. I don’t have any inappropriate photos or messages. I was barely even on the app. I emailed tinder and all I got back was saying that my account violates the terms and conditions of the app. I would like to know their reasons for blocking my account? Because there is thousands of other users who are in the same boat as me and don’t have a reason as to why? Or what they so called did.
Meeno Zen - Account banned for no apparent reason
I have been using Tinder on and off for a little while. My account was recently banned out of nowhere. I am certain that I did not violate any policies, yet my account was banned without giving any explanation. Tinder doesn’t have a resolution channel, since I assume it is cheaper to sacrifice a minority of wrongfully banned users than actually having people to assist its customers. I am in no way a unique case. I understand there are cases where a ban is well deserved, but even then an explanation or a warning should be offered beforehand.
Your account could be banned without cause. Tinder has no resolution channel leaving you out of pocket. Think twice before investing any time or money in the platform.
Leonhan - Unbelievable activity and attitude
I have been using tinder for 3 years, which I have got golden membership in my account with more than 450 super likes stocked which I haven’t use. I could be a very regular user for the app, and during the using, I have not even abuse anyone for language or attitude. But suddenly one day I received msg that my account has been banned cuz of I against policy???? If I match someone I am super nice and easy going chat and running conversation, compare with most of ppl there just ask meet up, I am much appreciate with each person.
Very disappointed result on this app, I have no idea of any other has the same or tinder just want people pay them and give you no reason and kick you out.
Joe1748 - Idea 💡
Tinder is awesome easy to meet with someone especially if you have Tinder gold.
I think Tinder should have feature what’s called ethnics it would make it easy for a guy or woman to meet like for example. Filipina girl in Australia, Lebanese girl in Australia, USA girl in Australia, Chinese girl in & British in Australia. This is just an example I’m asking it would make so easy if you can add the feature ethnics. Instead of seeing one girl you don’t like and you press nope. Other than that I enjoy this app.
kejgweg - Device ban is ridiculous and no support staff
I got banned on my phone (was paying for tinder gold) for something completely ridiculous, a while later my mate tried to log on to his tinder account on my phone because his phone died as he was meeting a date, and his account got banned instantly. I find it completely absurd how you go out of your way to permanently ban users. The lack of ban reviews is disgusting and I would rather pay for another dating app. Not to mention the recent doubling of your prices for a service with absolutely no customer support is quite sad.
Hope you fix this mess soon otherwise you will loose a lot of money.
Too permanent - Bugs are NEVER fixed
For all the apparent bug fixes that app updates apparently bring, the app runs like garbage. Do you have the ability / knowledge to fix the broken notifications? Badge icons that show an unread message always persist even when there is nothing new? Is this big left in there to make people open the app more?
Include dark mode already. You’re gouging people for their money by making them PAY PER READ RECEIPT? even AFTER they’ve paid like 50 bucks for one month of gold? What insane universe is this??
Just make a working app at least. It feels like garbage to use.
Azzamagic - Banned for no reason
If I could give this app 0 stars I would literally banned for no reason as for being banned there was literally nothing that warranted the ban I had #BLM in my bio which is think is unjust and unfair as everyone should have a right to have opinion on things happening in the world as we speak I would not waste time or money on tinder as it is a rip off
Competitve Dad - Banned for no reason
Looking at the reviews, it seems like this is an increasing trend. I used the app for a year, took a two month break, signed up for gold again, was on for a week, got banned, lost all the money. No explanation, no reason, no warning, no breach of the terms or guidelines. At the time, I was only matched with one person and the only message I’d sent was just a few notes about myself. Don’t know if I was reported, don’t know if they just cull accounts. I’m out serious cash and have lost an avenue to finding someone new after losing my wife to cancer. I’m devastated by this...
Tim odydjfy - No with it
Paid for the gold package and I keep getting notifications even though no one was there. Received many likes from people before I payed and all seemed to vanish after I payed. Global Search is a big issue. You start to speak to someone who is 5 km from you then you find out they are several thousand km away, even in a different country. Since there is a global search option there should be a choice to not pop up in other people’s global search if there original location is outside you distance setting

nicekimha - Tinder pay system
Hello tinder is good app but i have problem
Like last time, there is a problem that makes more payment without me knowing. I strongly ask for a refund, if you want, I will attach an image of evidence. I'm not lying, I want to solve the problem quickly, I bought only five boosters on December 6th but It was paid more without my knowledge.
!!&@$/&/&! - Account banned for no reason!
Useless, used tinder for years, did nothing wrong would occasionally meet someone ok to go out with or even oddly enough make some friends off it, however one day went on and was hit with an account ban for absolutely no reason at all! You don’t get matches after a couple hours/days if you’re a male no matter how good or bad looking you are so don’t bother unless you want to part way with hundreds of $, had gold a couple times even then you’d get a few matches & then it would die again, not worth it at all.
dexter slice - Not what it use to be
Many years ago tinder wasn’t controlled by money hungry people.. you wouldn’t have to spend money to match with people, but now as soon as you create an account you will get matches for the first few days and then after that it’ll be zero.. if you’re a girl, this concept doesn’t apply to you and you’ll get infinite matches. They know guys will spend and waste their money so that’s why they target men. I find it disgusting that the only way to meet new people is to spend money. All the other dating/hook-up apps are like this
horriii - My account was banned for no reason
So my account was banned for no reason. I read though the guidelines just to make sure I didn’t violate any terms. I emailed support to see what the issue was and they told me that because my account was banned that I won’t be able to use it again. I figured it would be ok, I’d just start another account on a different number and unfortunately my phones ip is blocked so no matter what my number is, my email, location.... unless I get a new phone I’m banned for life for no reason. I’m terribly confused.
.....pls fix! - this app would be amazing if they don’t ban people for no reason
This is the worse app for getting banned for no reason I know heaps of people including myself who have been banned and have not done anything breaking the policy’s all your really doing is getting less people to use your app and I don’t think that’s the point. If your going to ban people sure but only if there’s a proper reason with evidence and it should only be for like 3 months or something like banning people’s numbers forever just gives you less users.
Saaraahb - Not what it used to be
Tinder worked great at first but now I think there’s too many people on it and tinder doesn’t really know how to handle it. I have 100+ unread messages that aren’t even showing up in my inbox. Sometimes I get a “new message” and it was from someone I matched with ages ago - only now coming up. I get SOME notifications that I have a new message but the only way I can see it is if I delete and reinstall the app. Just not worth it anymore if they can’t handle these problems for their users.
Nick52917374 - Stop with the pop ups
Guys. Get rid of the pop ups. I open a chat and I can’t get rid of the reminder to turn on push notifications. I do not want them. And now that reminder is impossible to remove (glitched). So I can’t even see half the chat screen.
And now on top of that, you send a pop up asking me if I want to FaceTime with someone every time I open a chat? It’s no wonder I ain’t ever wanna open the app? It’s a hassle to even use. Get rid of the pop ups over chats.

Watched the trailer for swipe night and it seemed interesting. A few choices into the story though and I noticed the way to select your choice is bad/doesn’t work properly. It demonstrates a swipe, so I swipe the direction of my choices, but it chose the other ones! Didn’t even finish it, since the results would have been not what I wanted. There should have been a clear guide to the swipe night released before the event, and these problems wouldn’t happen. No way to restart the episode.
Jo5dy - Annoy and buggy
The notification badges are annoying, they display their numbers for amount of messages+ amount of matches. You’d have to go through each single profile and looking at each profile for the notification to disappear.
Consequently I’ve turned off all notifications from tinder and now there is a pop up in every single chat asking me to turn the notification back on. How silly
Big Daddy Do - What’s with swipe night?
If I was a vacuous 18 year old swipe night may have been interesting, but sweet baby Jesus it was painful if you’re over 35. Do people as empty as this really exist?
Otherwise it’s an entertaining app. Will you find love? Probably not, but a chance to meet people you probably normally wouldn’t.
Spaghettoreo - Subscription Debarcle
Hey there. Looking for a dating app where you can pay for a subscription from multiple options instead of just through iTunes? I am.
Honestly annoyed that I can’t pay for a subscription because my phone is locked out of making purchases through iTunes over the “free” category. Would be nice to have an alternative to paying for a subscription instead of depending solely on iTunes.
GonnaFlipIt - Banned for no reason
My account has been banned for no reason and when contacting tinder about it they don’t care and just send a generic message saying iv violated their terms when I hadn’t even used it in a couple of months before rejoining. The support team give no reason why even when asking multiple times nor do they care. Please get some actual people to review these cases for those who didn’t do anything wrong. There are a lot of reviews to back this up.
AtlasInWonderland - Inbox ads, ignoring settings, unhelpful support
You now get messages from advertisers directly in your inbox!
They also don’t warn you that using Swipe Night will cause the ap to:
- begin ignoring your distance preferences
- begin ignoring your age preferences
- make it harder to browse relevant matches by hiding their helpful info behind swipe night info
- change the UI (which looks worse, and bugs in some places)
- and you can’t reverse these
I contacted support and they offered irrelevant suggestions.
When I’m provided irrelevant messages, matches, information about those matches, and even support it makes me feel like my time is being wasted.
I don’t care if there’s less content. I’d rather only read relevant content.
adamsilver - Both
Tinder is becoming a company that is both for the one night stand, and mid to short term relationship.
To point out that fact that they are cashing in much too quick by raising prices & charging $60 for the ‘platinum’ account - well they ought to raise capital someplace else.
Mikestar4 - Review of Tinder
I have had many problems over the years with Tinder where I have got logged out and when I have logged back in I lost all of the matches that I had.
I also paid to be able to go backwards when I had swiped too quickly but this function is not working anymore ☹️
When Tinder works it can be good as I have been on a few dates but I have found it to be unreliable
Sayyouwillrememberme - Got banned from Tinder for being 19 years old
Basically, i got banned from Tinder for being 19 years old and out of nowhere I can’t access to my tinder account anymore. They told me that i need to be 18 to be able to used Tinder but like i’m 19 with all the information that i have been provided including my ID . I don’t know where the got the age of me being under 18 years old from. Now I can’t even delete or create another account because i only have one phone no.
Jerastar - Overpriced membership?? $44 a month?!
I’ve used tinder for quite a while and during that time it’s been great. I’ve used the premium features where they have usually charged me around $22 a month if I wanted to upgrade to gold. But ever since I’ve turned 28 I’m looking at the exact same upgrade options now and they are trying to charge me $44! 😓 Now I’m not sure if this is an error, but charging double the original price is a bit of a greedy stretch, don’t ya think?
Bleachrulz - The app needs more features
While I’m getting a good amount of engagements, I really wish I could filter people I see by interests, especially because I don’t want to date any single parents and I want to find those who like anime more often.
DamienCaris - Bad
Ridiculously expensive for membership and it straight up lies about how many matches you have in order to get you to buy Tinder gold. I get asked every SINGLE time I open a chat with someone if I want to Face to face call them and even if I open their profile and go back to the chat it will ask again. The only way to stop it asking is to say yes to it for each person. Absolutely ridiculous and a waste of time and money.
AllyMayB - Stop asking if I want to change my swipe to a superlike
Can you remove that please? I know how to swipe left and swipe right and swipe the hell up! I don’t need to be asked every time I open the app if I wanna change my swipe to a dam superlike
이디야망할 - Hey here have A lot of The Worst Demons.
I was met one person. When I met him, He touched my iPhone secretly and erased his number and tracked everything.
And he said "contact to me again." He so bad and disgusting. Why too many disgusting and strange people ? Almost they want to Onenight stand.
At first, they acted as if they were going to be serious, but they were all disgusting people with masks on.
Seriously There are too many demons here, regardless of appearance or occupation.
I'm not the only one who's been through it. My friends also have many bad experiences. To prevent this from happening, please write down more detailed personal information for men so that they can join Tinder. There are so many people who do bad things. Cus they don't need write their detail information.
Musical.lly user - Kicked off for nothing
I really enjoyed tinder then one day I got kicked off mid conversation with someone, I only had for 2 and half weeks. I ask for help and assistance in figuring out why I got banned yet they didn’t help at all. They didn’t answer any of my questions either.
I know for a fact I didn’t do anything wrong because I was being cautious as it’s my first time on a dating app and I’m not dumb about these things.
Fix your services.
Ceara-Lee - Don’t get services I pay for
I pay for tinder gold, it’s supposed to show you everyone who has liked you, but it doesn’t show you everyone as often I’ll swipe right on someone who isn’t in my likes feed and it’s an instant match.
It also repeatedly shows me people I’ve already said no to
Jenovis - Banned for no reason
As it seems with far to many people, I was banned for literally no reason, reached out to the ‘customer service’ team (if you can even call it that) and got sent some blanket statement that they couldn’t do anything, literally what is the point in having an app if you’re going to marginalise and ban half the people on it for ‘violating terms and services’ but then not actually check, I did not violate anything. Rubbish
mikestarr - Absolute garbage RUN!
Check out the negative reviews! Majority of people are being banned for no reason at all. When you email tinder for assistance, you receive a generic email response and nothing more! They have absolutely zero costumer service. Disgusted with their poor service delivery and that they ban profiles for no reason.
I wish nothing but the absolute worst for this company, I honestly hope they go bankrupt or get sued.
Disgusting display of poor management!
aaa2236 - 0 customer care
Was a paying subscriber, used the app for a long time. Log in one day account is permanently banned. No reason. No explanation no customer support, their isn’t a way to talk to the customer support team, every email reply is just automated
Really hope they realize what they’re doing. Go online and google tinder banned for no reason and you’ll see thousands of paying subscribers have been banned. They need to fix this
Ice Froggy - Lost the plot
This app has lost the plot. Full of fake profiles, people advertising escort websites, Asian profiles dealing in currency or share scams or fake profiles saying to chat to them on Instagram or Snapchat.
What’s Tinder’s response? They want us to Report these profiles. How about you at Tinder verify new profiles. Why have a location setting if Tinder will show people outside your setting? Why swipe left only to see the same profile a few days later.
Vixta74 - Disappointed
I only started using the app a couple of months ago. I haven’t logged in for a couple of weeks and have now been banned. I have an authentic profile and pictures, have engaged in polite conversations with matches and have not breached the terms of service in any way. No warning or explanation given as to why my account was banned and no acceptable response from customer service.
jaspermck16 - Banned with no reason
Been using tinder on an off for a long time, account was banned today for no reason at all. After reading the reviews it looks like a common problem. I wouldn’t be so annoyed if it wasn’t for the fact I brought tinder gold a few days ago an had started talking to a really nice girl just as I got banned. Don’t think I’m finding her again. All I ask for is at least a reason for why I got banned!
huso95 - TINDER HAS BECOME A PORN PROMOTING SITE
What’s with all the fake profiles ? I thought tinder would at least be a bit better at getting rid of them considering I’m also paying for it.
And there’s so many people on there just because of only fans I used to like the app it’s complete rubbish now , people are just using It to promote their porn. And tinder is letting them. At least 1 in 4 profiles is fake or promoting their only fans porn account , TINDER HAS BECOME A SITE
Leonard627 - So overrated. Other better options.
Member for 12 months. Got dozens of matches. Never met anyone. It’s not a site to meet anyone seriously.
But worse after they had a technical hitch I couldn’t log back on to access my Tinder Plus. My preferences were lost.
Support was poor. No help at all to fix.
After I said I’d leave unless they helped me access my history they didn’t even respond.
If you want to actually meet potential love interests there are much better sites. A waste of money and time. The hookups you read about in the media are hyped and are rare in my experience. Actual love outcomes even rarer. Save your money and go somewhere like Elite Singles where I personally know people who have had success.
Buwana69 - Total and complete scam!
We (couple) paid almost $60, and been on it a day. Had virtually no chat history and certainly didn’t do anything at all wrong, no offence pics, or text or anything. Next thing my account is banned without explanation why it was banned and no appeal process and no way to get the money back! This is a horrible scam that takes your money, ban you and wash their hands. Tinder should be banned as a scam!
DML_90 - Disappointed
I’ve been back on tinder for less than a week. I have purchased tinder gold. And within this time yet again the app is constantly “loading” and won’t open, after a minute the app shuts itself down. I don’t understand how an app that I’m paying for continues to have this issue time and time again. And after a 2month hiatus from it, the same issues still occur
War ever - I’m permanently banned
Someone I went on a date with was horrible racist and made fun of disabled people but I was nice all the way to the end he cracked it when I said I didn’t want a second date. And he has reported me for something and now I’m perm banned I tried emailing the support team on the 14th of October with no reply. So if you don’t like someone on tinder report them with false clams and they will get perm banned. Was a fan before this 🤷♂️
Esiana - Banned from tinder never used it before
I just downloaded tinder and for some reason my number was already banned even though it’s never been used for tinder. I’ve heard many people have been banned for no reason it’s quite disappointing to be honest and they losing a lot of customers I must say overall worst dating site customer service is absolutely terrible don’t even bother with this app
Jaydenpenny - Banned for no reason
Been on and off tinder for the last 12months
I come across nice people and some people with questionable characteristics... I will delete my profile from time to time and sign back up. I went to login in the other day and it said I was banned, but for what reason? No reason. Only thing I can think of is a delete my account too often. But the reason is ridiculous.
Wondering how you could earn $25 by just signing up? Earn $25 for free by joining Payoneer. Sign Up!
jclauf - Unable to cancel subscription.
And when I go to submit a request for help with the issue, they direct me to a page that gives me the same useless advice (doesn’t work), with no ability to send a request for help w cancelation. Unable to cancel under Apple account because it’s not listed under subscriptions, yet I got charged. BAD business practice.
Broumand - Girls Just Playing
Most of the girls on here are plugging their IG. A lot of them have no desire whatsoever to make a connection or talk
Skyler3333 - Banned for no reason
I made an account awhile ago but I wasn’t 18. I just turned 18 today so I went on the app and tried to log in but it says I’m banned?? Customer service refuses to help. This is ridiculous. I haven’t even used the app so how is it possible that I’m banned???? Worst app ever🙄
stacy 2129 - Disgrace..
This app is a disgrace and should be SHUT down immediately. Do not and I mean do not waste your money on this crap they just take your money and show likes but you never match even with payment, greed will be Tinder’s downfall remember these words.
beardofchinys - Ugh
All week I have been having so many issues with using this app. I’ll open it and then the screen is loading and loading forever but it doesn’t ever load!!!
dylan91. - Disgusting and sexist towards men!
This app is criminal and is so biased and sexist towards men. Discrimination should be penalized.
Mariouchio - Ban hammer for no reason
Welp, looks like I’m now one of the many people who got banned off tinder for absolutely no reason. Guilty until proven innocent I guess.
Tomix124 - Très sexiste
Les filles que je connais peuvent voir les gars qu’ils l’ ont like sans avoir le Tinder Premium. Nous les gars, on doit payer si on désire voir les filles qui nous ont like.
Kateri690 - P2W Garbage
This app is nowhere near as good as it used to be. You won’t get anywhere using it unless you pay to see the people who have liked you.
v1311 - Bullied
Been bullied on this app twice.
Stu42069 - I would give zero stars but that’s not an option.
Only was able to get 10 or so matches in a month that were horrendous after spending 23$ on the membership. Literally I am not an ugly guy at all even. This app just steals money.
remisansfamille2 - Boosts are useless
I am a fairly looking guy (around 8/10) I payed for a boost and got 0 matches even if f I was swiping around. I received few likes (7). Total waste of money.
Your friendly neighbour... - Night mode
Tinder my man it’s time to put night mode in the app please.
Just unreal - Tinder: get a new developer
Your great advice wasn’t helpful. After reinstall I can’t change locations now and it continues to crash numerous times daily. I’m having an ongoing frustrating experience. Your app is laced with issues. Look at all the feedback, and what are you doing about it?
antho2002222 - Ban for no reason
I got ban for no reason how can I contact tinder
Kaitlyn🌚🌚 - terrible
i got banned for NO REASON and NO EXPLANATION. They need to create a mode where you can become unbanned or something else. very upset
benbenny0204 - Very bad
Just wasting your time with this app.
armd121 - Account banned
I don’t understand why I got banned from Tinder for no reason and I emailed support team they still didn’t do anything it’s just stupid and ridiculous
Blyat Zayebaly - Lol,the most useless thing ever
To use it you have to spent at least 90$ a month
mickey6343 - Issues
I got banned because they said I was underage but even when I took pics of my driver license and submitted it, they still wouldn’t let me back in the app.
gfzitsiysoydoydoy - Need call option because I’m tired of handing out my number to lames
Need call option because I’m tired of handing out my number to lames
Li janhyson - Who are the ppl who liked you?
You dont know who like you if you didnt pay like 20$ a month. the way too expensive an no other choice btw 1 month and 6 month
friend of tinder victims - Don’t do it
A lot of good people on here but it takes one crazy person on here to absolutely ruin a life. Great app and all but it’s not worth it. Meet people in person, you might not meet as high of a quantity of people but you will meet more quality people by searching for love not on an app.
hcaitlin - Disappointed by this
I was banned from the app and I have absolutely no idea what I could have done wrong. I did not violate any terms or conditions so I put in a request and the customer service did not help me at all. I was enjoying conversations and now I have lost contact with the people. Not happy at all.
Rational 'Radical' Centrist - Confused user
I was banned from Tinder along two other dating apps within the same weekend—I’m not sure at all why I was banned. Must have been some technical bug? No response or way to appeal from developer.
name0129 - Possibly one of the worst dating app
If you swipe right too much, it lowers your score and eventually you’ll just stop showing to anybody
If you want matches, do not swipe right on every women
Most people doesn’t know about this corrupted algorithm and it will make people pay for boost or to get tinder plus/gold/platinum and it will still not help you get matches
If the algorithm consider you needy or desperate, it will do everything in its power to get your money(i.e match with only bots, telling you people are liking you but will never show them to you)
HesherL - Used to be good
Tinder used to work alright for free users but that’s long out the door. I used to match upwards to 10-15 people a day on the free version a year ago and now I seemingly never get matches. They clearly changed their algorithm for the worse to get you to pay for gold.
tjsherpa - TINDER GOLD GETS YOU BANNED
Hi all, I gave this review because my account got banned for absolutely no reason. I looked it up online and apparently this suddenly happens to a lot of guys without wanting. I can assure you I had done absolutely nothing wrong; no nudity, no bad messages, no racism or insults thrown. I even had gold! And yet they still ban you, there’s obviously a glitch in the system, and Tinder needs to work on this. I think maybe because gold gives you more accessibility, and so more people are there to report you, even if it’s for no reason.
MrTyrantZero - Unjustly Ban
The app works fine and it’s really user-friendly but it doesn’t tell us WHAT the reason is for us getting banned and there’s absolutely no way to appeal. I’ve heard from various sources if a girl reports a guy he’s banned immediately but not the other way around, takes various time’s reporting a female and they “violate” terms all the time by not showing their faces or putting images with quotes, etc. and that’s really unfair.
Hroskdnakmahd - another person banned without reason
i’m seeing loads of people her being banned for no reason whatsoever, or because they were too young, which, when i first downloaded tinder i was 17, but this was before tinder made itself 18+, my account worked for about a year but after i had already turned 18 i somehow got banned. at first i thought this was because people who i had called out for their blatant racism (ie calling black children monkeys, or non-black people using the n-word) were mad and reported me, but how in the hell are we supposed to “correct” whatever behaviour doesn’t align with tinder’s terms and conditions if we are never told why we were banned? anyways, now i use bumble which i prefer to tinder, as it allows people who identify as women/femmes to initiate the conversation, and while you can still send photos, they are censored until you purposely click them, so as to protect you from unsolicited nudes. anyways, delete tinder and download bumble y’all :)
Kurt1793 - Not working
I used to use this app a lot but it won’t recognize my number or connect through Facebook. Kinda frustrating cause I’d like to use it
Landan R - Banned without warning or reason
Payed 113 usd just to have them scam me refuse a refund or any reasoning. Basically criminal
coolguy_20_20 - Banned for no reason
Had the app for little over a month and was going pretty good then all of a sudden banned out of nowhere.
Rinslettt - Banni
Moi et l’’une de mes amie avons été bannie sans aucune raison, nous n’avons meme pas eu le temps d’écrire à quelqu’un. Nos photo étaient très banale et nous n’avons même pas eu le temps de faire une description.
Lorsque nous avons écris pour comprendre, nous avons recu un message automatique disant que nous avons enfreint les règlements mais sans spécifier et lorsque nous lisons les règlements, nous n’avons rien fait qui mérite d’être bannis....
Voilà donc mauvaise application injuste
that guy 899 - Terrible customer service
Logged into my account after deleting it for a bit, got banned for no reason. Customer service does not look into it and keeps the ban
boosa0990 - Got band
this is the second time this is happened and it’s really frustrating as I’ve paid for a membership for tinder gold both times in my account randomly gets banned after I reach a certain number of matches and I really don’t understand if there’s anyone contact me and help me figure this out with my account or give me my subscription back that be very helpful because I don’t believe I have broken any other can you drive lines and I’d be more than willing to talk to someone, One minute I was OK on the app within the same hour then the next it said my account was banned
Marime1998 - Banni
Je regarde tous les commentaires et je comprend que je suis loin d’être la seule à qui s’est arrivée. J’ai été banni pour aucune raison moi aussi (on ne m’a rien expliqué non plus) et c’est pratiquement IMPOSSIBLE se refaire un compte. Vraiment décue.
Mountaingoatheadsoup - What is wrong with Tinder?
I am just getting back into dating pool and was going to try Tinder but after reading all the reviews about people getting banned for no reason (or so they claim) no way am I planning to use this app.
There are literally dozens of these complaints. What is most concerning is that Tinder developers don't even try to respond or explain what might be going on. That is really poor customer relations.
Glad these apps have reviews at least to warn others. So thanks for the warning.
Lurodi78 - Can’t delete the app
Am I the only one having issue deleting the app? Error message every time.
homiday - Yikes what is going on?
Had issues with the app for two weeks reinstalled a few times and it didn’t work and then I got banned for no reason even though I couldn’t even use the app to do anything worth a ban?
Yoshiissocoolnotatool - Banned for no reason
Got gold then was banned the next day for no reason, no warnings or anything just straight banned for life for nothing
Bland89 - Banned for absolutely no reason
This app is complete trash, I downloaded tinder after not having it for awhile and after only 3hrs my account got banned. I emailed tinder support twice almost a week ago trying to find out why I was banned and if I could get that ban lifted and I’ve been ignored so just so people know, if they ask you to send them an email or they ask you to get in touch with them in any way don’t waste your time because they won’t help you. This isn’t the end of the world for me by any means because I can use other apps if need be but damn tinder, you need to work on your customer service big time.
Hannahffffff - Banned for no reason
Should be a review process to be unbanned
Adamy9491 - banned124
Paid 200$ for this app
and they banned
mdhvxbbd - Banned for no reason
I was banned for no reason. I want a refund of my subscription
avstar77 - Banned- been on since 2017
Not sure why I was banned. I have been on this app for years, I make one offhand joke to a lady I matched with. Then I can’t log in a half hour later.
I honestly don’t understand why there is no way to appeal a ban or even get issued a warning. I have spent hundreds of dollars on this app over the years and have had marginal success in actually meeting people (which is why I feel angry to be banned at all). I am polite, my profile was free of offensive material, but here I am. Lord forbid I have to actually meet someone the traditional way.
jod30 - Banned
I was randomly banned when I follow all guidelines! I don’t say inappropriate stuff or do anything inappropriate like some people do on here and somehow I’m banned?! I’m of age also!
sollygooseqw - Horrible service
I got banned from tinder and when I tried to message them about it they said they don’t deal with it .. horrible I never even did anything wrong and deserved to have it looked into
Eckhooo - Banned??
My account was banned—and absolutely no violations were made I can assure you and there is no way to get it back or even make a new account. Welp. Do better tinder.
CarpeOmnivore20 - Doesnt let me create an account
I tried creating an account and it said i was banned 🤷🏼♀️

*Swag_Muffin44* - Crashes but good
I started two days ago and have 69 likes and I’m pretty ugly so something has to be wrong with the app other than it crashing every 10 minutes on me. I’ve met some amazing girls, there is one who is really sweet, I’ll talk a little more but I am willing to drive hours to take this girl on a date sooooo. I don’t like how I can’t get unlimited likes or more than what I have for 12 hours. There no limit to love so why limit the potential for it? Paying for that stuff is just corporate bs that needs to be left behind. Let this be something good for the world not something that feeds off of it. This is an app and a website not Apple. You don’t need to make a bunch of extra features or take pre-existing ones and try and make people pay for it. Also it’d be cool to make another app for different religions. Like Tinder Christian, Tinder Islam, Tinder Judaism, etc. just an idea for y’all.
Dreyfus mullevart - App is ok but getting worse and worse.
Seems like the developers to the app are coming up with more and more ways to try and make money off the app. I feel like the more features they add to the app, the more the free version of this app becomes useless. The new feature for “upgrading your likes” takes the purpose of super liking away and makes it sound like all the people you swipe on don’t get to see your likes. It makes it seem like a gimmick. So you could swipe for hours daily and your likes aren’t seen? Over all the app is decently structured it seems to be moving in the wrong direction to where you’re going to have to spend money to get any matches. I’d like to see the app keep its free version as exciting as the paid features without making you feel like you absolutely need to spend money to get anything out of the app. I would love to give this app a better review in the future but for now I can only give it two stars.
emma0044 - Terrible
I have had tinder for a couple months. I ended up matching with some man who had said many inappropriate and obscene things to me and after I was thoroughly uncomfortable he continually asked me if I was in fact 19 and at the time I was. He continued to question my age and harassed me until I logged in to unmatch with him I see that my account was banned. He later messaged me on instagram apologizing for reporting my account and begging me to forgive him. Obviously this man was very mentally unstable and had dragged me down with him. What I don’t understand is how my account was banned based on no investigation at all. I have never violated the terms and conditions and in fact of age as I am now 20 years old and have been banned for many months. Tinder has done nothing about this situation regardless of my countless emails and complaints. It’s a great app as long as you don’t match with creepy men who apparently can ruin your whole experience based on no evidence. Thoroughly disappointed at how this company handles situations like these.
princess.gambino - Won’t load or refresh anything.
I’ve been a paying customer for over a year and a half and i got banned randomly for the SECOND time ! The first time i got a new number so i just made a new account but this time I’m done ! I thought i did something wrong both times until i went to their Instagram and saw TONS of Tinder customers in the comments begging to be unblocked ! Tinder your customer service and no appeal process is absolutely horrendous. All of the money this company makes and you can’t make a way for your customers to appeal unnecessary blocks? It’s hundreds of bots, catfishes, inappropriate guys.. but y’all continue to ban people that aren’t doing anything. You have no interest in helping your customers but love taking their money. You’ve constantly jacked up the prices while at the same time making the customer service worse! DONT GET THIS APP! They take your tinder gold money then ban you ! All of the recent reviews have been 1 Star do some self reflection as a company and get your crap together !
Hi2013ueuwieuie - Actually found my 1 in a million
I was not a believer in tinder for the first months of using it. Honesty, data of scrolling with any matches or conversations being about as boring or unfruitful as you can get. One day however, I used a super like on a very attractive girl, expecting the same result as I normally would. A short conversation then ghosted. But after talking for a little while and finally a date, I quickly realized this girl is truly amazing and someone I quickly found feelings for. Fast forward to now and she is truly and amazing girlfriend and someone I’m planning on dating for a long time. Maybe your chances of finding someone you truly love are 1 in a million. But I ended up being that one, and if I was able to, you can find your one in a million too.
AppleUser3739303826 - Best option but don’t get hooked
I’ve deleted this and/or gave up more than I’ve used it but it has good potential overall and the best “dating” app by a million. I dated a girl for a year from this, other short terms ones after, and a couple hookups, so there’s promise here if you’re lucky in finding the 1% of people that posses some level of humanity. The other 70% of attractive people are ghosts and catfish. The remaining 29% are prostitutes and scammers. This is from a male perspective, so the female experience will differ. This app has its flaws but there’s potential and the premium is better priced than the competitors. Helpful tips: SC on bio is a hooker, IG on bio is follower hungry, SC as first contact is a ghost, phone number doesn’t mean anything, and ghosts always turn into zombies then ghosts again so don’t waste your time. Good luck gentlemen.
Noting Radd - Do not pay for platinum
I got an ad for Tinder Platinum and went ahead and bought the annual. Then, like the previous reviewer, I was banned. I’m 100 percent sure that I didn’t violate any sort of community standards. I always try to be polite, never swore, never posted fake photos, none of that. So I was really shocked. Anyway, mistakes happen. Only, there is no phone line to call. You can send them an email but there is no guarantee they’ll even responds. There is no appeals process. They don’t even tell you what caused them to do it. There’s just this death screen that says “you’ve been banned.” It’s like a Kafka novel. So I JUST paid for this annual prescription and can’t use it for reasons unknown. I don’t particularly like to communicate to the world that I’m on a dating app, but I felt i had to write this review because...what else can I do at this point ?
Perhaps I should be grateful. I was about to invest in tinder’s parent company “Match” before this experience. But I don’t want to support a company that doesn’t value its customers.
Erik Soong - Trash app for bots or IG girls. Deleted
If bots are your thing, you might find your special someone here. If you like actual people who aren’t pushing their instagram, look elsewhere. Horrible experience.
EDIT: Get a load of this dev team canned response below. It’s made under the assumption that users are not doing exactly what it recommends. I have. I am sure countless others have as well. It doesn’t work. The problem is that the onus is not on me, the consumer, to ensure you are providing a quality product. You can’t tell me that you can’t sweep profiles for phone numbers, Instagram tags, and Snapchat links. Are you kidding me? You have created a match-making algorithm based on consumer preferences but you can’t create a crawler program to identify and ban bot accounts? Give me a break. Of course you can. It’s not even a complicated program to make. You don’t do it because if you did, you wouldn’t be able to claim the title of app with the most profiles or some other nonsense. A lazy response from a lazy dev team.
azang62 - Horrible
I used tinder for a little bit and decided to take a break from it. So after a long period of time I decided I wanted to use it again so I downloaded it again when I logged on I seen that my account had been hacked and was being used by someone else. I emailed them because there is literally no other way to get a hold of someone and was told that my account was fine and it hadn’t been hacked which was obviously not true since it had none of my pictures up any more so a few weeks later I tried to get on again to do some more investigating and learned that my account had been blocked because of violations of tinders rules so I emailed them again and got back a a generic email stating that my account violated rules and they were not reversing any decisions at this time. It obviously was not looked at by any real person because I tried emailing back again and got nothing else. I’m not sure how this app can be any more horrible completely ridiculous
jaxteller11 - Doesn’t make sense
I’ll stars by saying, the first time I opened a tinder account, I had 100+ likes and made many matches with beautiful girls. I had to pay to view who liked me and to have super likes which seems the easiest way to get matches with girls you like. But in reality I didn’t had any good conversations with any of the girls . They seem uninterested on having a real conversation and getting to know you, it really feels like they are on tinder to boost their ego and get more followers on instagram and sc. Everytime I open an account again it seems it’s getting worst. I barely get likes and any matches even using super likes (gold membership) which doesn’t make any sense to me, because (humbly) I am really good looking guy, with good pics and a good bio. Every time i go out to nightclubs or bars women stare at me. I am good looking guy, successful, athletic with a good personality and I can’t get any matches . Something doesn’t add up to me. Waste of time and money. Better go out and meet girls on the street!
Chey316 - Fed up
I’ve used Tinder on and off for years. I’ve never been so frustrated with this app till now.
Things were smooth, I had multiple conversations going, I’d swipe right and no problem if it was a match it would show up. Tinder worked just fine. But then it was like a switch went off. No more messages, I’d swipe on people and nothing(fine figured I hadn’t matched anyone), I swiped on someone who super liked me and nothing, they didn’t show up under new matches, nothing!!
I tried deleting the app, I tried deleting it and restarting my phone and downloading it again, I tried logging in differently, nothing worked. So I wrote tinder per their very horrible customer support options and received a “Request received help/support” email. I've yet to hear anything. So again I proceeded to do everything above and still nothing.
Now I’m annoyed so I try to delete my account so I can just start over. I get to the prompt to delete my account and I CANT EVEN DELETE MY ACCOUNT !!
Monkey525 - Banned for no reason with no appeal
Tinder does not do ban appeals. I was recently banned for no reason. I am in college and of legal age. had a verified account, pictures, linked Instagram, filled out bio, and stats. I am not into hookups, and I do not partake in illegal activities. It is so disgusting the amount of fake accounts or illegal accounts that are on the app, but when an individual actually needs an outlet like this, they are banned. I reached out to the company and asked for insight as to how I was banned, and I was told that I was banned and wouldn’t be allowed to use the app again. They never answered my actual question and the response seemed automated. I was highly disappointed to have put so much effort into something that ultimately got taken away from me. Take it from me and the 10 most recent reviews on here, because clearly they are having an issue with censoring accounts. The lack of reasoning is highly distasteful. Don’t waste your time on this app, it’s a scam and disappointment.
Aerocalypto - Terrible Customer Service
Stewarttt29 - Don’t waste your money
If you want to waste/throw your money away on this then go ahead and download. People say this is “free” it ain’t, it wants to charge you for everything! and the moment you pay for something the whole app slows down, you get no matches and if you do it’s a straight scam account like the app itself. I’m not bad looking at all, and I would come on/off with this app but this time around I feel scammed and ripped off by this app. Not even their “boost” work $6.99 for 30 minutes and only 2 likes? Get out of here. And don’t accept the social distancing thing because that’s all you’re going to get, people who live 1k+ miles away and for sure....less matches. Money pit scam, don’t download this as addicting as it is.
****Update**** I came back to it and it is still the same. Boost doesn’t work. No matches for the past 5 days. And when I remade it I supposably had 7 lol this thing is ridiculous. Gotta stick through it now, I paid for a month smh lol
HCWAYTOBE - Thank you tinder!
Without tinder I never would’ve met my amazing girlfriend. I had never had a girlfriend before and she only had one boyfriend prior, which lasted about a month or so. Despite this, tinder made it really easy to match with a lot of different people in order to see who I wanted to pursue further. I used the free version and the 100 swipes a day was plenty for me to have a good experience with the app. All in all, when I messaged my girlfriend for the first time on tinder, I knew that we vibed just based on the responses she gave me. After snap chatting her for a few weeks I finally got the courage to hang out with her in person. From there, we’ve been together for 1 year and 4 months so far. Thank you tinder for changing my life!
juliomirandaaa - Banned for literally no reason
I’ve been using tinder for 2+ years on and off. I’ve always followed the rules, kept everything very appropriate and never used it for other than it’s intent— meeting and talking to new people. I’ve being going through a really rough breakup from a long term relationship, tinder was sort of a comfort for me right now. I literally was banned completely out of the blue while having great conversations with people. There is no repeal process in place and I read all the terms and agreements and have never once broken any rules! This is an issue as I look into it, tons of other people have been banned for literally no reason. Not only is it concerning for my privacy considering this app has access to all your information but also the fact that I was given no reason for a ban nor an outlet to be able to be unbanned. Very upset and disappointed I just want my account back asap. Tinder, please do better
benSWEEET - Useless, pay to win, flooded with spam profiles
First of all let me say that I have no trouble getting appealing matches from other dating apps. This is not the case for Tinder.
To even be seen by other people (about half of whom are spam profiles anyway), you have to pay for a “boost”. Otherwise no one will even see your profile to swipe on you. This is true even if you pay $30/month for tinder “gold”. I found that after purchasing tinder gold and sending hundreds of right swipes over the course of many days, the result was 1-2 matches. When you stop swiping, the algorithm drops you to the absolute bottom of the stack and no one sees your profile. If I wasn’t actively spending time swiping every day, no one would swipe on my profile.
Besides being dejecting to use, it’s a complete waste of time and money. Again, I have had no problem meeting people on other dating apps that are actually designed with the user in mind.
wanderessrt - Problem with Match tab
I have to keep deleting and re-downloading tinder because the “matches” tab keeps disappearing. There’s two tabs usually. The tab that shows the messages between you and your matches and the tab that shows you status updates and photos, music etc. Well my account keeps losing the tab that has the matches updates, photos, music, etc. it’s frustrating and it makes me not want to use the app anymore. Plus I haven’t had any real success with it because the algorithm is weird as well. I’m a lesbian, and men still show up on my feed even when I don’t want to even see men’s faces on tinder. There’s a lot of improvements that need to be made. This one in particular with the match tab is the main thing. Sorry I don’t mean to sound like a Karen but I’ve put this off for several months now and it’s just taking up too much of my time so if it doesn’t get fixed I just simply won’t use this app anymore.
Joshesc - Good but
Edit: I’ve been trying to delete my occupation for weeks. For some reason it’s still showing up on my profile even after deleting it from the edit screen... pretty annoying.
Edit: it’s been laggy the past few days. It just forced quit again.
This is honestly the best dating with Bumble being the second best. I made a new account after being off tinder for about a year or two. It’s good. I like the interactive party episodes - that’s something you don’t see anywhere else in the dating app world. It would be great if these were longer & there were more episodes. One downside is that lately my app has been a little slow & freezes or forces quits sometimes. I did update my iOS last night so it must just be app. They’re also probably the cheapest dating app for about $7 a month if paid in full for 1 year membership. Overall I love tinder.
næœn - Um, what?!
Sometimes I use this app and it gives me TONS of matches... not that that even matters. Point is: I downloaded this app recently and it totally just froze my account. Also, not only did it freeze my account... it won’t let me delete it either now. This app is a total scam. The algorithm and ELO score is complete junk. Now it won’t even let me delete my account because I’m creeped out it just froze like that, it’s not giving me matches, and it seems totally bonkers. Um, isn’t the point of an app that it’s supposed to work properly?! We live in the age of the backwards apps. They don’t want us helping each other. The rich elites want us to be starved of oxytocin and love. If you do their bidding and be a good little slave too they will still starve you of oxytocin and love anyways. They believe that only they deserve love an affection. They are selfish and mean and cruel. Every one else is just who cares to them. Very sad. Very sad day and age we live in.
ACE-93 - Honest review
The amount of girl’s on my this app is astonishing. So the user base is there but the app has some serious functionality problems and other anomalies that if fixed, could take this app to next level. One issue is not getting messages or seeing matches. I always get notifications on my iPhone that I have a new tinder match or message. Yet when I go to the app, there is nothing there. After doing some research I found that you have to turn your phone off then back on to get your messages and matches some times. There are other issues, I just don’t have the time to write them right now. I will say, the app is good overall and I have acquired new relationships from it.
AsiaTheReviewer - Shadow Banned for no reason
So i just joined tinder 1 day ago and Not to seem cocky but I normally receive 3-4 matches within 5 minutes (i had a tinder months ago) and i started to realize i wasnt getting any matches anymore and my matches i did have stopped responding to my messages. So I decided to message one guy i was talking to through imessage to see if he received any of my messages on tinder and he confirmed he did not. So i curiously googled why i wasn’t receiving any matches and why my matches weren’t receiving my messages and behold i found a little thing called “Shadowban” . Tinder shadow banned me for some odd reason after ive literally done NOTHINGGGG. This app has gone down hill. How do you guys expect to keep users if you keep banning them. Ban the people who actually do things wrong. This is why other “dating” apps are beginning to sore and youre falling behind. Rethink your policy and customer service or that 3.8 stars will continue to fall.
nubz77 - Literally worst app
I’m unsure why, but my swipes aren’t registering, I’m unable to delete the account, but I also have not received any form of warning stating whether or not my account is under review or getting banned. Furthermore I have no way of contacting support or customer service in any way so even if I do get banned there is no way for me to find out why. It’s a flawed system that does nothing to mitigate people making the same mistakes as other people. I feel as though I’ve done nothing wrong and as far as I know I haven’t been reported at all. Overall biggest waste of 2 years of gold that I’ve ever spent. Tinder please do something that allows us as paying customers reach out to figure out what causes bans and don’t add new stuff to the community guidelines without informing anyone. I know many people who have been banned from the app without even doing anything yet. Biggest joke of a company on this App Store.
Tecklord - Spam filled useless app
aaronwLong - Account banned
I recently had my account banned I believe when I was attempting to verify myself with the 2 selfies. In my profile I had 2 pictures wearing a hat and in the verification photos, I did not have one on. I would not deliberately try to be someone else while trying to verify. I’m never vulgar or inappropriate and treat all my matches with respect. I can imagine how scary it can be on tinder, as a woman especially. I just want to give them a better sense of comfortability that I am who I say I am. Obviously the dating scene is harder now that people aren’t really partaking in any social events so I do enjoy meeting people on Tinder. There are plenty of people on there who do not deserve to be. From prostitutes, to people selling products/services to straight up catfishes. I do not fall in any of these categories and never have. Has anyone else had any luck contacting tinder? My efforts trying to contact customer support seem to be pointless.
kaja snow - Like every other One star review I was banned for no reason and tinder support is NO help at all
Seriously this app is good but the community guidelines and support have been the worst I’ve been seen. I got banned because I mad a JOKE about being 12 while flirting with a girl. Just to make it clear I am obviously not 12 because I don’t know a single 12 year old with a beard. At first the app said all I had to do was verify my ID however the link to the ID verification section did not work and kept saying “oops something went wrong”. I reached out to the tinder team for help only to be met with basic responses that didn’t help at all, it seemed like they were auto replying based under the category of your help request rather than reading your request itself and helping. A day later I was banned all for a joke that is obviously just a joke. IDK how many others have had experiences like these but consider downloading bumble instead.
hayhay12622 - Banned my account for no reason
Tinder is being 100% unfair. It has no real customer support. If you get banned all they tell you is to look at their terms and guidelines. Like excuse me? I read the guidelines and I followed them and my account got banned, so is their any real person I can talk to and settle this issue or are you going to keep ignoring your customers. I created and had my account for only 2 days! I bought tinder gold and everything was fine, I only messaged about 10 people (nothing inappropriate and nothing rude) and I tried to get on the app and said I was banned... you mean to tell me I spent $25 to only use my account for 2 days.. you stole my money and you stole countless of others peoples money. You have stolen the opportunity of hundreds of people and have yet to help the people who were wrongfully banned.. that’s why your app is dropping in reviews and many people are refusing to download your app.. YOU DISGUST ME TINDER!
BBreezz - Banned and no helpful feedback
I only had tinder for a few weeks and then was banned out of nowhere. I had a weird interaction with a user so I stopped replying that day then next thing I know I was banned when I opened the app after driving for a few hours. I emailed Tinder and they just said I violated the terms and conditions which I actually went through and read and I didn’t violate any of them. I did some research and it said if someone reports your account then they automatically ban you which I think is crazy because there was nothing wrong with my account nor my interactions on the app. Wish they were more transparent about why people are banned and an actual process for the situation. Also the app crashed a lot which was annoying.
replying here cause idk how to on the thread, but I am banned so the technical tips aren’t gonna help me lololol but then again it will i guess if y’all give me my account back
alexis depinho - BANNED AFTER 2 WEEKS
you wouldn’t think tinder bans anyone given how many people clearly violate the rules (couples running one account, people selling drugs, people openly lying about their age, etc). and yet, after two weeks i opened my app to see that i had been banned. no explanation, nothing. there wasn’t anything in my profile that violated the guidelines (trust me, i checked), but there was still nothing i could do about it. as many others have said, there’s no appeals process, which is shocking given the popularity of the app, but what’s worse is that they won’t even tell you why you were reported.
after my account got banned i started seeing how common this experience is. a handful of friends had the same thing happen, and i saw even more people mention it on twitter. there aren’t many other apps used by people my age, so i’ll probably just make a new account, but i’m still really disappointed.
EvolutionBarSean - Terrible terrible terrible
Tinder thought I wasn’t a real human.. after they confirmed that I’m real, I got back into my account to find everything a mess! Messages deleted, matches disappeared. I had matches messaging me on Instagram confused as to why I unmatch them! And then to add insult to injury I went from really popular to algorithms pretty much resetting on me.. now I have to start all over again.. terrible app & software. I’ve learned my way around the fake profiles and how to become popular, I can just imagine so many people using this getting depressed thinking they are not good enough. I think tinder should take some action and allow 1 profile per social security number or something that would make the app legit! For now it’s a safe haven for fake profiles & con artist doing con jobs! Tinder doesn’t care because they make money, even from the fake accounts! Shame on you tinder! You’re playing with peoples lives!
Jagermister19 - Please stay away from this. It’s a joke.
First I’m not going to discredit everyone on this app because I know a few people personally who have use the app and whoever found success but there are a few in 1 million that are actually genuine people on this thing. So good for the ones you do find it but for the others I wouldn’t even waste my time.
I’m going to tell you this right now, not the best site’/app you should be on. Listen to what I’m saying. I’ve been on this app for about three years I’ve only been lied to, scammed and cheated out of meeting someone and chasing someone and also losing a ton of money.
I am one of those gullible people but also I’m one of those genuine people who really just want to meet someone. Tinder is the equivalent to a dumpster that belongs to a sex factory that on fire. Please just go out there and explore. You are wasting your time, money and effort that could be invested into a real relationship.
Bindi alanine - Wrongfully banned
After speaking to many friends, I honestly don’t know anyone who isn’t banned from tinder at this point.. which is wrong, none of them had inappropriate content on their profiles. Tinder is going downhill. At this point I will just be using other dating/friend apps and recommend everyone else to. Tinder obviously doesn’t value the people, soon they won’t have anyone left to ban. I’ve had tinder for 3/4 years now, I never change my pictures or bio. I have never posted anything inappropriate. I have respectful conversations with people, yet I have been banned. One of my friends added #BLM to their bio and also got banned. So why do you not support BLM? Bumble, hinge and every other dating app doesn’t seem to have a problem with it. I’ve kindly emailed tinder and tried to call the number (which doesn’t work) and all I’ve been told is that it’s my fault for not following the rules? HOW IS SUPPORTING SOMETHING AGAINST THE RULES?
Mad Army guy - Crippled subscription
I have had a subscription for approximately two weeks and I just tried to go on the website and I’ve been banned for no reason. I haven’t violated any rules nor regulations and I was banned! I had a premium subscription and I am going to make sure I delete it off of my account so I am not charged for a subscription I no longer have. It’s absolutely ridiculous on how I was banned for doing nothing and I was logged in last night... The fact is I haven’t broken any rules nor have I violated any regulations that are within the bylaws of Tinder, but I no longer have a subscription. I would say to go elsewhere if you’re looking for a dating app for you could be next to be banned for doing nothing. If I could give this app 0 or -10 stars I would definitely do it. But POF or something else is better than this crappy app. Good luck if you decide to make a subscription to this app!
mikeeee7777777 - Banned randomly, no appeals process
I had Tinder Plus for about a year and thought this was a pretty good app until I woke up a couple days ago to find my account banned with no explanation given. My initial email simply yielded a response saying that I could not appeal bans and I emailed one of the email addresses given by the developer in a response to a different reviewer but got no response. I really want to be able to use this app again as I feel like I did nothing wrong but there is seemingly no one to get in touch with about this issue and judging from the comments this is a pretty common issue for users right now. Tinder needs to get a support team ASAP that actually reviews bans, there are plenty of fake accounts that promote drugs, prostitution etc. and yet it seems like innocent users who have done nothing wrong are being punished worse.
dkakjf - Keep getting banned for no reason
Used to love this app. But now I can’t stand it. I tried reaching out to customer service many times and they won’t do anything. I keep getting banned from tinder when I am of age. They keep saying I violated guidelines when I read through them and I did not at all. They won’t even tell me what I violated. It is also stupid how they don’t even have an option to appeal me being banned. WHEN I DIDNT DO ANYTHING WRONG. I AM 18!!!!!! Stop banning me when I am of age. Also I simple added a picture of me in a swimsuit if that’s the issue, I WAS NOT NUDE AT ALL. I am absolutely done with this app, horrible customer service. I was talking to this nice guy on the app and now I can’t even talk to him anymore since I am banned and they won’t unban me. WHEN I SHOULDNT HAVE GOTTEN BANNED IN THE FIRST PLACE. They say they take it very seriously!! Obviously not if you’re banning me for absolutely no reason when I have not done anything wrong!
mtxxiv - Not what it use to be
Been off & on tinder for years. It was fun matching and chatting with new people, having a few dates here and there. Was fun seeing who liked you before you made a decision and being able remotely change your location especially if you were out of town or something. Now, the experience has gone downhill. It’s really hard to match now, and every aspect of the app costs money. It was great having tinder gold include things all in one price, I think the first time it came out it was 9.99 a month and even without the subscription you would get free boosts here and there. Now the boosts cost money, and the gold and whatever plans they have now costs a lot. Yeah I know the company wants to make money but come on, you guys really have to take advantage and charge for every aspect of the app? Now have to rely on FB’s dating section, hopefully they don’t go downhill like tinder has.
er95k - I hope that some day we will be able to see more diversity in the Tinder community.
Tinder has banned me numerous times for “terminating their terms of service” but, doesn’t have the decency to share with me how I’ve violated their terms. It feels very discriminatory that Tinder feels that they can ban someone simply because they don’t like their profile. I keep my photos and messages appropriate. The only thing I can think of is that I have had to report some members due to sexual harassment. I’m starting to think that perhaps tinder has a problem with women who simply need to report inappropriate messages with unwarranted sexual advances. I noticed that my account was banned after I decided to bring attention to the these deplorable messages. I hope that some day we will be able to see more diversity in the Tinder community and that they can start advocating for the victims of sexual harassment instead of banning them.
gunfighter_z - Used to be good, now just a scam
I’ve used Tinder on and off for a few years, with minor success. I’m a bit of an odd duck, and not particularly attractive enough to offset that, so I was not surprised there.
There were always some bot profiles, and one even got me well enough to steal my debit card number, but it became pretty easy to spot them. However, in the last year or so I have noticed an enormous uptick in obvious bot profiles and matches that never reply or unmatch, and also likely real profiles for women blatantly advertising their Onlyfans and Premium Snapchats.
Even while trying to dutifully report these profiles during regular swiping, only to see direct clones of the profiles in the same session, I received a ban without any warning or identification of what I had done to earn it. As it was still an occasionally fulfilling way to waste a few minutes at a time, I do miss it sometimes, and none of the countless other dating apps even came close at its worst.
Despite this plunge in quality, the cost of their premium services/“items” and the push for those has only increased, which makes economic sense as the devs fight a losing battle against getting real jobs again.
TL;DR online dating has run its course, and we’re all going to have to go back to attempting to seduce our married coworkers.
Me6900 - Tinder unfair
I have been on Tinder for couple years , and was enjoying it , made alot of friends , all the sudden Tinder banned me for no reason , i try to talk to tinder staff and try to know the reason why i have been banned , is it because some people just enjoy giving users hard time by reporting them for nothing , there are many spam accounts in tinder and i didn't see Tinder banned them, Tinder should review each reporting for both sides and banned should be limited for a time and not permit , Tinder should happily except unbanned requests from users and give them the right to unbanned the accounts that been banned for no reason and with out any previous warnings first , Tinder should give users at least three warnings before banned the account if they broke the user agreement. With such treatment that users face from Tinder , that would make tinder lose alot of profit and users who enjoy the app.
Kitkat.miami - Awful
I hadn’t used my tinder in months and when I finally logged back on, my account had been banned. There was absolutely no reason for my account being banned and I even had my search turned off so now one could see me besides the people I had already matched with. I have seen accounts trying to sell themselves for sex, yet I used tinder as a normal user and my account had been banned. I even emailed tinder support to ask if my account had been hacked or why I got banned in the first place and I never received an email back. In fact, they refuse to email you back if your account has been banned. I emailed on several occasions and they have not responded. They won’t even give you the time of day. They truly do not care about their users. Worst customer service throughout any dating app. There was no reason for my account being banned and now I can’t use the app at all.
Jonathan H 18 - Banned after three hours
I downloaded this app later at night. I messaged no one and matched with no one (yes I’m aware that sound pitiful but I’m just trying to prove my point). All the pictures were of me and my friends besides one that was a picture of a show I watch which isn’t even a real person. My bio was just me saying I don’t like sodas or chocolate and I watch anime go hiking and play video games. After a couple hours I got back on the app to see that I’ve been banned. I go email someone involved with tinder and they told me there was no way to get unbanned or prove I was innocent. I was really annoyed that they wouldn’t even tell me why I got banned. I wouldn’t be that upset if it wasn’t for the fact that I’m having to use bumble and I don’t like anyone on there. Everyone seems to be older on bumble so it’s really awkward cause I’m 18 and I don’t wanna match with someone who’s 30 with two kids.
flipboardsown666 - Support is horrible, shadow banned for literally using the app.
I got shadow banned a while ago for using the app as it’s intended to be used and there is no way around it as there’s no way whatsoever to contact support. They only have an FAQ to be used to troubleshoot issues and it does nothing but vaguely answer generic user questions.
They will shadow ban you so you don’t get any matches, and remaking your account doesn’t matter as they apply the shadow ban to your IP Address, your Apple ID, your phone number, your email, and/or your Facebook profile. Their only interest is money, and that’s very, very apparent now with the new “This profile is a popular profile” feature that asks you if you want to upgrade your like to a super like on someone, thus, buying the super like with real money.
The company does not, whatsoever, care for its users and push away probably a 3rd of their customer base due to this.
BiGGs2626 - The app withholds likes
I might be one of those board serial swipers and I live in a small city. I go through a lot of profiles each day and it’s annoying to see that there are 23 people who apparently have liked me and are waiting for us to match. I know that if I paid for the membership I could see them right away but I’m cheap and I enjoy the fun of waiting to see who I matched with. The annoying part is when I’ve swiped through so many profiles that it tells me there are no more single ladies in my area but yet it tells me that I have 23 girls who have liked my profile already and we are just waiting to match. if I swiped through all the profiles available shouldn’t the number of people who liked me go to zero? So it must be one of two things. 1: those likes don’t actually exist or 2: the app is withholding likes unless I pay for it. Either way, it’s not a very honest system.
henry.richardson - Account banned and no review or explanation
My account was just banned and was never explained why. I keep my messages pretty pg-13 and under. Nothing thirsty. My photos are not sexual and nothing in my info is sexual.
When I go to try and reinstate my account they do t have any phone number to call, no one to email to have your account reviewed, and I can’t even start a fresh account because my number is attached. So I guess I am just permanently banned and can’t do anything. I mean if they are going to do that they should at least email you what you did apparently to get banned. Because honestly I have zero idea.
Edit: still no effort by tinder to reach out to me. And after reading all of these ratings I don’t expect them to change. Sad that there own idiocy of banning people that didn’t deserve to be banned causes the collapse of the original dating app with the swipe left or right concept.
Bajwkw7882 - Messages not loading/no new matches
I have Tinder Gold. Paid for it after making a new account because on my old one I wasn’t getting new messages (a bit weird since I had a number of matches messaging me at the time). So anyway, I used this new account with gold for half a day. I replied to as many messages as I could overnight because I was getting overflowed and since everyone was sleeping it was easiest to reply. I wake up to NO new messages nor matches. I start swiping with the gold feature where all those have already liked me and every time it shows up with “cannot match with —- error”!!! I’ve deleted the app and reinstalled, logged in from the website, turned off my VPN, everything and still nothing loads :( I don’t want to have to make a new account once again because I was having good conversations with some people but idk what’s going on?????
m-t-w-11 - New feature showing who’s popular? What?
I’ve used this app for years and had a lot of fun doing so. However in the last few days I’ve noticed that there’s a new feature that gives you a pop-up when you like a “popular user” and encourages you to super like them to “get their attention.” First of all, the pop up is obnoxious because if you’re not willing to pay for tinder, you only get one super like per day. Second of all, what a downer! The app is telling you “hey- your profile doesn’t have a chance, so try to increase your odds!” Just so weird and off putting. I understand the idea- tinder wants you to pay them so you can super like more often. But doing so by telling people they don’t have a chance unless super liking a “popular user”? Sad. Definitely avoid this app if you don’t want that in your head. Tinder- please remove this feature or make it optional.
DrMooseMan74 - Bad direction
I started using Tinder when it was pretty new and it was very well run back then. Now it’s turned into how much money do you want to spend for nothing. I gave Tinder Gold a shot for a month but I keep getting notifications about liking a “popular user” and that I should upgrade in order for my profile to be seen. Which would leave me to believe that this is happening more than the app is telling me. Sometimes I get matches when I have no one that “liked me” first so clearly even the version that I paid for isn’t working properly. If it’s not one thing with this app, it’s another, and another. The developers have continuously come up with more and more ways to make money and shaft everyone who doesn’t want to spend $30 a month on Tinder. I’m just sad to see Tinder stoop so low. Needless to say I’ll be deleting my account and going elsewhere for my dating needs.
Chase696969 - Don’t spend a cent on this app.
You can get banned from this app for absolutely no reason. Be warned, and don’t actually pay for any of its services because a company who doesn’t even have a proper appeal process that lets report trolls get away with such behavior don’t deserve a single cent. I am very disappointed. I always said Tinder was the best dating app out there, but even sleazy Grindr holds more integrity. I preferred Tinder because I always felt unsafe using Grindr. I was using this app for a few years, and never had any problems with it. I was barely using it lately until I got to start talking with someone, and on the day that we were going out on a date, hours before the meetup my account got banned. Extremely disappointing, and even makes me look bad because the other person who I can’t even get a hold of probably now thinks I’m a flake. Shame on you Tinder, shame on you.
recon4962 - Not as good as you think
I’ve used tinder for about a few months and no matter how much praise it gets from others saying it works and score some dates when like any other dating app is a complete and utter disappointment. Men have worst luck for dating sites and this is no exception. After creating a tinder account it’s only good for a few days then you can’t get any more matches. The only matches I’ve gotten were: catfishes, bots or women promoting their own porn or instagram, woman that won’t respond to you, women with bad or toxic attitudes, males using a female labeled profile and females that made a profile for no reason. tinder gold doesn’t help much because the only thing it’s good for is seeing who liked you. Once your account is about a week old you get no more likes. So yeah tinder doesn’t do a good job on their terms and service by not banning people that are there to not date.
RatedArrrrrr - Don’t waste your time
I’ve been on the app off and on for a few years now. It’s always had a problem with fake/spam accounts, but over the last year it seems about 1/3 of the accounts I see are fake/spam ones trying to get you to email them or message them on other social media directly, and it’s *very* obvious. Other apps don’t have this problem so there’s a solution somewhere that Tinder doesn’t care to find.
A more recent, and more serious problem is the app not following my preferences. About half the accounts I’m shown are either well outside my preferred age range (sometimes by a decade) or well outside my distance setting. I had one day alone where I was only shown matches over 1,000 miles away, and my distance preference is 25 miles.
Basically it’s not worth it because you’re not even going to see real matches who fit some basic parameters.

*Online Dating Thread*
1) Have made the decision to jump back onto Tinder, partially motivated by both my brother & sister having dates last week but also motivated by the fact that I miss trying to connect and interact with new people, so shall add to this thread!!

I will say that the guys on there are way better looking. And I think it’s because online dating apps are the only way of meeting new people nowadays due to covid times. But Tinder is still too white and couples looking for a third are colonizing the app like no other

When I told the last girl I met on tinder the work I do to help some homeless individuals, she responded by saying she hate homeless people. That was 6 months ago and I haven't been on a dating app sense.
She later texted me asking me if I could help her get a new job. The fuck
@ourshieldmaiden @bumble Reminds me of when I was using Tinder for dating (6 years ago). After reaching the end of the available women initially, I'd open it every other day for 2-3 new people. I was in a small ass 50 mi radius in podunk WY, though. Not a BIG dating pool
